Official Army Map Service Ranger VIII lunar map of the "Sabine, Mare Tranquillitatis [Sea of Tranquility]," 12.5 x 20, signed in the center in black felt tip, "Neil Armstrong, Apollo 11." Affixed to a same-size mount. In fine condition, with the signature somewhat faded and some peeling to the lower right corner. The Apollo 11 landing site was located in the 'Sea of Tranquility,' to the southeast of the area portrayed in this map. Craters closer to the landing site, once known as 'Sabine B,' 'Sabine D,' and 'Sabine E,' were renamed in honor of the Apollo 11 crew as 'Aldrin,' 'Collins,' and 'Armstrong.' An exceptional display piece.
