An 8" x 10" color photo of Aldrin during a Gemini 12 EVA is included. It shows the flashlight attached to his spacesuit, signed: "Buzz Aldrin". Fine condition.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Authenticity on his letterhead stating, in full: "This is one of two EVA flashlights I used on the flight of Gemini XII. During my extravehicular activity (EVA) or spacewalk of 13 November 1966, I exited my cabin seat and moved by hand rails to the adapter section of the Gemini XII spacecraft. I later unstowed two flashlights and mounted them to adjacent hand bars. At the end of my scheduled activities in the adapter section, I removed each light and attached them to Velcro strips on the thigh areas of my space suit and conducted other tests during this EVA. This light was available again for use during a stand up EVA the next day of my flight. The flashlight lens became distorted while exposed to the vacuum of space."
