    Description

    Apollo 11 Training-Used "LM-ORBIT" Star Chart Directly from the Personal Collection of Astronaut John Young, Signed and Certified. This 16" x 8" black chart on film, with white printing, is titled "LM-ORBIT STAR CHART (B)/ LAUNCH JULY 18". It was designed to be used in the lunar module. The Sun and the planets are all portrayed by colored dots in order to stand out against the star field. The outlines of a number of constellations are shown and many stars are named and numbered. Included among these stars are those named by Gus Grissom in honor of his Apollo 1 crew: Navi (Ivan Grissom); Regor (Roger Chaffee); and Dnoces (Ed White the Second). Star charts such as this one were an important part of the navigation equipment used by the astronauts in training for and during their Apollo missions. Young has signed in silver on the front in the upper right corner: "Used For Apollo 11 Training/ John W. Young". Excellent condition.
