Description

Enormous lunar planning chart signed by six moonwalkers on their landing sites

Exceedingly rare official Lunar Planning Chart (LOC-2), 48 x 28.5, signed at each of the six lunar landing sites by one of the moonwalkers on the mission: "First Lunar Landing, Tranquility Base, Buzz Aldrin, July 20, 1969," "Ocean of Storms, Alan Bean, Apollo XII LMP, Nov '69," "Fra Mauro Base, Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14, Feb 71," "Hadley Rille, Dave Scott, Jul/Aug 1971," "Descartes/Cayley Plains, Charles M. Duke Jr., Apollo 16, April 1972," and "Valley of Taurus Littrow, Gene Cernan, Apollo XVII, Dec 72." Nicely cloth-matted and framed to an overall size of 54 x 33.5. Cernan's signature a bit faded, and some moderate contrast to signatures against the busy background, otherwise fine condition. Desirable for its imposing size and coveted for its rarity, only six of these massive lunar maps were signed. A superior format portraying the landing sites of every manned flight to the lunar surface. Oversized. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
