The only photo ever taken of Neil Armstrong on the moon will likely go for a big chunk of change at a Christie’s auction.
An ultra-rare photo of the iconic astronaut after making mankind’s giant leap is expected to sell for more than $60,000 as part of the largest private collection of NASA images ever put to auction. It was taken by fellow moonwalker Buzz Aldrin after Apollo 11’s historic moon landing in 1969.
“Voyage to Another World: The Victor Martin-Malburet Photograph Collection” features 2,400 original photographs captured during the pinnacle of NASA’s missions. 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.
