The only photo ever taken of Neil Armstrong’s historic moon will likely go for a big chunk of change at an ongoing Christie’s auction.  

An ultra-rare photo of the iconic astronaut making mankind’s giant leap is expected to sell for over $60,000 as part of the largest private collection of NASA images ever put to auction.

“Voyage to Another World: The Victor Martin-Malburet Photograph Collection” features 2,400 original photographs captured during the pinnacle of NASA’s explorations. It features images spanning from Project Mercury, NASA’s first mission to bring a human to space, to 1972’s Apollo 17, the agency’s final Moon landing.

Among the other images up for sale: The legendary “Earthrise” photograph, which is estimated for nearly $38,000; the “Blue Marble” photograph, which is estimated for up to $31,000 and the first “space selfie”
