    Description

    John Young Large Apollo 16 "Leaping Salute" Color Photo Signed on Mat. One of the most famous of all lunar surface photos is the one of Commander John Young jumping up from the moon as he salutes the U.S. flag next to him, with the LRV and LM behind (NASA image AS16-113-18339). This 13.75" x 10.75" color print is mounted to a 19.5" x 15.5" (sight size) matboard and framed to an overall 22.5" x 18.5". Beneath the photo, Young has humorously written in bold black felt tip: "To Pat and Bastiaan/ This is the Best We could do without Pat Being There to Get it/ Focused For Us. With Best Regards From Descartes Base Moon/ John Young". Unique. A couple of scratches on the frame, otherwise excellent. From the personal collection of longtime NASA photojournalist Andrew "Pat" Patnesky.
