"NUMBER 1 ON THE RUNWAY."
“Edition 1. LM Ascent Monitoring Chart—Sheet 3B. 16 July 1969 Launch Date—Landing Site No. 2,” chart based on lunar orbiter photography, 12½ by 35¾ inches.

Ascent path chart identical to the one flown in the Lunar Module Eagle during the Apollo 11 mission, showing the flight path from Tranquility Base to lunar orbit.
Signed and inscribed by the Lunar Module Pilot, Buzz Aldrin: “’Number 1 on the Runway’ / Buzz Aldrin LMP.
” The quote is the radio call Aldrin gave to Mission Control acknowledging that they had a GO for lunar lift-off.
A white line from the landing ellipse to the left shows the planned LM ascent path and has time hacks from lunar lift-off plus 2 through 7. Craters that the crew could view during their climb to lunar orbit are labeled.
