Own a piece of Central Florida history…

Check from Neil Armstrong

Check from Neil Armstrong

With the 40th anniversary of the Apollo Moon Shot, Central Florida will soon be “buzzing” with space memorabilia.  With that in mind, you can own a piece of that history by bidding on this check, signed by Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon.

He signed the check shortly before take off, as a repayment of a loan. That check was never cashed and has made it way 40 years to the present, where it is being auctioned off.

Armstrong’s signature is particular desirable, as he stopped giving autographs back in 1994 when he became weary of profiteers. Wannabe owners can check out the auction here.

Fingers are crossed for clear weather Wednesday at 6:03 pm.  There is a 60% chance of favorable weather. For those of you who make the trip to see the launch, patience is imperative as safety is the #1 priority. Those of us who lived here in Central Florida when the Challenger disaster happened, know just how important patience is!
