Col­lec­tion of as­tro­nauts’ pho­tos on auc­tion block

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - NATION -

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 the 445 rare pho­tos taken by Amer­i­can as­tro­nauts that are be­ing sold by Skin­ner Auc­tion­eers and Ap­prais­ers start­ing this week.

The Mas­sachusetts auc­tion house says “The Beauty of Space” is the first-ever U.S. auc­tion to fo­cus solely on vin­tage pho­to­graphs pro­duced by NASA as­tro­nauts dur­ing the hey­day of lu­nar ex­plo­ration, from 1961 to 1972. The auc­tion went live on Thurs­day and runs through Nov. 2.
