    "Magnificent Desolation"

    Buzz Aldrin Signed Large Apollo 11 Lunar Surface "Visor" Color Photo. A stunning 16" x 20" silk finish photo on Kodak Endura paper of one of the twentieth century's most iconic photos. Buzz Aldrin is seen standing in a small crater with the Plexiglass of his helmet reflecting both the Lunar Module Eagle and Neil Armstrong who was taking the picture. It is largely and boldly signed in black felt tip: "'Magnificent Desolation'/ Buzz Aldrin/ Apollo XI/ July 20, 1969". This would make a really attention-grabbing piece for wall display. Bumped at lower left corner, otherwise excellent.
