Only one left! This magnificent piece of artwork will become an instant heirloom! The 16″ x 20″ canvas depicts the Apollo XI Lunar Module ascent stage, housing Astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin inside, heading back to their spaceship. With the Earthrise in the background this is the ultimate space shot! Buzz Aldrin has authentically autographed the piece in blue ink.
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.
As each canvas is signed individually by Aldrin, signature and placement are slightly different on each. The canvas is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Buzz Aldrin Ventures COO Linn LeBlanc depicting Aldrin signing them artwork.
