Official color semi-glossy 10.5 x 10.5 NASA photo of the Lunar Module Snoopy flying high above the surface of the moon, as viewed from Command Module Charlie Brown during the Apollo 10 mission on May 22, 1969, affixed to the original 16 x 20 mount, signed and inscribed on the mount in black felt tip to the creator of the Peanuts comic strip, "To Charles Schulz, Snoopy never did know which end was up! Best wishes from Apollo X & 'Snoop,' Gene Cernan," "Tom Stafford," and "John Young.” Framed without glass to a slightly larger size. In very good to fine condition, with fading to the image, and light soiling and small gouges to the mount. The connection between the Apollo program and the Peanuts comic strip is well documented. The call signs for the Apollo 10 spacecraft were the names of characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy, the semi-official mascots of the famed 'dress rehearsal' Apollo mission, and Peanuts creator Charles Schulz also drew some mission-related artwork for NASA. An awesome gesture of appreciation from the Apollo 10 astronauts to one of Earth's most adored cartoonists.
