John Glenn was the first per­son to snap a pho­to­graph of Earth from outer space. Neil Arm­strong took the first pic­ture from the moon’s sur­face. The orig­i­nal prints of those are among 445 rare photos taken by Amer­i­can as­tro­nauts that are be­ing sold. The pho­to­graphs are valu­able not only for their sci­en­tific and his­tor­i­cal sig­nif­i­cance, but also for their artistry, says Michelle La­mu­nire, a spe­cial­ist in fine pho­tog­ra­phy.
