ARMSTRONG, Neil (1930-2012). Photograph signed (“Neil Armstrong”). [Kennedy Space Center, 19 June 1969.]

A superb signed photograph of Neil Armstrong in spacesuit during Lunar Module Simulator training just under a month before Apollo 11 launch.

A full-scale Lunar Module Flight Simulator was located in the Flight Crew Training Building at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida. Armstrong was there during parts of June 1969 and continuously from 26 June until the 16 July 1969 launch. Here he is performing a full-dress simulation in his spacesuit. Located just behind him at head level appears to be part of the Apollo 11 LM Timeline Book mounted with a book clamp to the Alignment Optical Telescope. Armstrong would have been working with the “Basic Edition” of the Timeline Book which was also dated 19 June 1969, the same date of the photograph.

Black and white photograph, 8 by 10 inches. An official NASA-released photograph with blue mimeographed caption on verso giving release date of 19 June 1969. Photo No. 69-H-986.
