VINTAGE, 11 X 14″, ALDRIN AUTOGRAPHED, ORIGINAL,1969, NASA APOLLO 11 DEPARTING THE MOON PRINT
NEW! This vintage, NASA official 11” x 14” print has been authentically signed by Dr. Buzz Aldrin and depicts the Apollo XI Lunar Module ascent stage, housing Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Dr. Buzz Aldrin inside, heading back to their spacecraft. With the Earthrise in the background this is the ultimate space shot!
This image was photographed from the Command and Service Modules during rendezvous in lunar orbit. The Lunar Module was making its docking approach to the CSM. Astronaut Michael Collins remained with the CSM in lunar orbit while the other two crewmen explored the lunar surface. The large, dark-colored area in the background is Smyth’s Sea, centered at 85 degrees east longitude and 2 degrees south latitude on the lunar surface (nearside). This view looks west. The Earth rises above the lunar horizon.
The print is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by a Buzz Aldrin Ventures Board of Director, depicting an image of Dr. Buzz Aldrin signing the print. Autograph placement, size and ink color may vary, as Dr. Buzz Aldrin signs each print uniquely.
