Description


Rare off-white 5 x 3.5 card calligraphically inscribed with information for a reception following the dedication of a space window at the Washington Cathedral, signed on the reverse in ballpoint by Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins, and vertically in ink by Buzz Aldrin. In fine condition, with a central vertical fold (passing through, but not adversely affecting, portions of the Armstrong and Collins signatures) and trivial show-through from the text on the reverse. Accompanied by the original event invitation and colorful service program. On July 21, 1974, five years and a day after the historic moon landing of Apollo 11, a church service was held at the Washington Cathedral to dedicate a stained-glass window embedded with a rock retrieved from the moon. Attended by the prime crew and present and past NASA administrators James Fletcher and Thomas Paine—the latter who donated the window to the Cathedral—the service was highlighted by Armstrong’s presentation of the lunar rock, an artifact affixed within the celestial window's central microcosm located 33 feet above the Cathedral floor. As a celebration of man’s never-ending devotion to the heavens, this is a wonderful, uncommonly seen format signed by the three heroes of the Apollo 11 mission. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
