Description

Aldrin marks LM Eagle’s landing spot—one of only 15 signed examples

Extraordinary lunar map of the Apollo 11 landing area, 22 x 17, depicting an area of the Sea of Tranquility known as ‘Apollo Site Number 2,’ and signed in the upper right in blue felt tip, “First lunar landing, Apollo XI July 20, 1969, Buzz Aldrin, LMP,” who then adds an “X” to mark the exact landing spot of the lunar module Eagle. The chart was printed by the Manned Spacecraft Center and is identified in the lower right corner, “MSC–6132–69.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance. Specifically printed for use by astronauts, mission directors, and mission support personnel, this exceptionally rare and attractive topographic chart of the lunar surface is one of only fifteen signed by the moon’s second walker, whose precise location of the lunar module’s landing spot adds even greater appeal. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
