    Description

    Gemini 9A Flown Constellation Chart and Greek Letter Cue Card Signed by and from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot Gene Cernan, used for the mission's rendezvous. This 24" x 9.75" printed chart with handwritten additions was used in Gemini 9's rendezvous with the Augmented Target Docking Adapter as noted at the top, "GEM-ATDA Roll Axis (0-0-0) Track/ For 3 June 1966 Lift-Off at/ 13:39:36 or 15:15:10 GMT". It is three hole punched at left and folded as to be pulled out for use. Captain Cernan has certified and signed near the top: "Flown on Gemini IX Gene Cernan". Also included is a really interesting small cue card 2.5" x 4.5" in size. It has all the letters of the Greek alphabet along with their English names, equivalents, and pronunciations. This constellation chart uses many of these Greek letters and this was apparently the crew's "cheat sheet". It is also certified and signed by Cernan as above and is still attached to the chart with a definitely vintage paperclip. Very fine condition.
