LIMITED EDITION PRINTS
by Alan Bean
An Alan Bean print without an astronaut in the picture! In this quiet view, Apollo 8 circles the moon on Christmas, 1968 on it's journey back to Earth. This is signed by the artist, it was a short edition, and sold out.
This was only the second manned Apollo mission, and the first to use the Saturn V moon rocket. The gutsy decision to send only the second manned mission to the moon was made because the Soviets were rumored to be making a lunar voyage soon (to be commanded by cosmonaut-artist Alexei Leonov.)
