Description


Beautiful flown 6.25 x 4 American flag carried into lunar orbit aboard the CSM Kittyhawk during the Apollo 14 mission, signed and flight-certified in black ballpoint, "Flown to the Moon aboard Kittyhawk on Apollo 14, Edgar Mitchell." In fine condition. After successfully undocking from the Lunar Module Antares, Command Module Pilot Stuart Roosa lifted the Kitty Hawk to a higher, circular orbit where he would conduct a number of tasks, which included photographing the Descartes region—the eventual Apollo 16 landing site—and conveying observations of prominent lunar landmarks to improve future landing accuracy. Provenance: Heritage Auctions, November 2011; originates from the personal collection of Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell.
