Edgar Mitchell’s flown and used Apollo 14 Command Module sleeping goggles, flown to the moon aboard the Kitty Hawk during the Apollo 14 mission. Goggles consist of two circular purple ultraviolet lenses set into a black leather mask-type holder which slipped over the face to cover the eyes, with an adjustable strap to the edges. Goggles come in a wooden presentation box along with a color 10 x 8 signed NASA photo of the Apollo 14 LM on the lunar surface, signed in silver ink by Mitchell. Accompanied by a 2002 letter of authenticity signed by Mitchell, which reads, in part: “This is to certify that the accompanying Apollo 14 Command Module Sleeping Goggles were used by me aboard the Command Module ‘Kitty Hawk’ during Apollo 14…During our sleep periods, we used window shades to block the sun’s intense glare from our cabin. However, one astronaut also stood watch as the other two slept while leaving the cabin lights on, and these goggles, with their purple ultraviolet lenses, helped me sleep in our brightly lit cabin. Over the course of their journey, these goggles traveled over one million miles through deep space, achieved speeds approaching 25,000 mph, and orbited the moon thirty-four times!…I chose to retain these Goggles for my personal space collection, where they have remained since 1971…Today, my Sleeping Goggles remain one of the larger Apollo mission-flown artifacts actually worn by an astronaut during one of the first lunar-landing missions.” RRAuction COA.
