Description

Apollo 17 flown lunar landmark map used to study the surface of the moon

Lunar orbit flown lunar landmark map carried aboard the Command Module America during the Apollo 17 mission, 10.5 x 8, with left border bearing an affixed Eugene A. Cernan Space Collection label signed in black felt tip by Cernan and stating: "The crew used this flown Apollo 17 CSM Lunar Landmark Map to study the Moon from lunar orbit.” The map, identified along the left side as “0900 AS15,” depicts a crystal-clear portion of the lunar surface labeled at the top as “Tsiolkovsky to Pasteur.” The map is removably presented on a color satin-finish 13 x 19 photo presentation showing Cernan holding the ‘Lunar Landmark Maps’ manual from which this map originated. In fine condition. An ideal lunar flown item with spectacular aesthetic value, deriving from the safekeeping of the last man on the moon.
