APOLLO 11 TRAJECTORY CHART—WE COPY YOU DOWN.
Apollo Translunar / Transearth Trajectory Plotting Chart (ATT), Apollo Mission 11. June 23, 1969, 24 X 20 inches.

The chart is centered on a north polar view of the Earth and displays the July/August 1969 orbital path of the Moon around the Earth. The Apollo 11 flight profile is plotted and events such as Earth launch, translunar injection, lunar and earth coast phases, lunar orbit insertion, lunar landing/liftoff, and transearth injection are included.
Boldly INSCRIBED and SIGNED "Our Road Map to the First Lunar Landing! Buzz Aldrin, LMP," and "Eagle, Houston, We read you now ... You're go for PDI ... You're go for landing ... We copy you down Eagle, Charles M. Duke, Jr., Apollo 11 CAPCOM."
Duke's words are exactly as transmitted (slightly abbreviated here) to Lunar Module Eagle during the historic landing sequence.
