Skinner in Marlborough, Massachusetts, will hold an auction at 10 a.m. EST on Nov. 2, 2017 of vintage NASA photographs, The Beauty of Space:
The 446 lots will showcase the extraordinary photographic journey to the Moon and back as seen through the eyes of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo astronauts. While the astronauts’ primary goal was to record their activities, they were inspired by what they witnessed, creating images that transcend documentation. Over five decades later, the photographs are now appreciated for their artistic value as well as their historical and scientific significance.

I have seen some auctions in Europe that have brought outstanding prices on original photographs, so it will be interesting to see if an American auction will bring these prices as well.

All times are CT (US)
