Handwritten note by Edgar Mitchell on the reverse of a yellow 5 x 2.25 Post-It, which reads, in full: "This is a very abbreviated and somewhat misleading version of what I said. I have no first hand knowledge but rely upon the testimony of high ranking government & military officers who were there at the time and say 'Yes, this happened." The Post-It is affixed to an off-white 8.5 x 5.5 sheet bearing a typed lead to a newspaper article from October 15, 1997, which begins: "A former astronaut who walked on the moon says he thinks aliens have crash-landed on Earth. Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the sixth man to walk on the moon, said he believes some military and other planes use technology derived from alien spacecraft that have been captured and disassembled." Mitchell's note is in reply to a question penned on the other side of the Post-It by a curious fan. In fine condition.
