    Description

    Alan Bean Signed Limited Edition "Kissing the Earth" Print, also Signed by Charles Conrad and Richard Gordon, #307/650. A 27" x 21.5" color lithograph issued in 1998 from an original 1994 acrylic painting by Bean. It is signed by the Apollo 12 crew beneath the image: "Charles Conrad Jr", "Alan Bean", and "Richard Gordon". The caption reads: "Pete Conrad and I were completing our descent and landing check lists. If all went well we would be on the Ocean of Storms in less than an hour. As I glanced out of the forward window of lunar module Intrepid-the earth, some 239,000 miles away-appeared to rise rapidly. Australia was just coming into view. It was a breathtaking sight." Stored rolled. Light surface smudge to the left of Bean's signature, very fine.
