[H]ardOCP: Today is 49th Anniversary of Apollo 11 Moon Landing

Nearly 50 years ago, NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong made history by becoming the first man to walk on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission.

Neil Armstrong died in OH in 2012 at the age of 82 and his family has turned to Heritage Auction of Dallas to sell items from the astronaut's estate.

Armstrong, who passed away in 2012 aged 82 years, made history as the first man to walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

Featured in the auction are items which were taken to the moon including a series of flags - representing not only the USA but also the United Nations and a number of individual American states.

Correspondence, including a NASA document "Underscoring the planning behind the landmark event", will also be on sale.

Netanyahu: Trump & Trudeau asked Israel to evacuate White Helmets from Syria
Panicked passengers, fearing for their lives, posted pictures of the militia surrounding their buses on social media. Some Syrians have opted to be evacuated to northern Idlib province, where the opposition still holds territory.

Speaking to Associated Press, Mark Armstrong, Neil Armstrong's son said his father never mentioned what he wanted to do with those items he kept.

Dubbed the Armstrong Family Collection, the collection contains more than 2,000 items and will be under the hammer in a series of three auctions.

"Space is one of the very, very few categories that every single person seems to be interested in", Rohan said. "He did save all the items, so he obviously felt they were worth saving".

The Armstrongs turned to Sarasota, Florida-based Collectibles Authentication Guaranty for help with preserving and authenticating the artifacts and memorabilia and chose Heritage Auctions for the sales.

"There will be flown items, autographed items and items of historical significance", Armstrong's son Mark described the items in the collection. "You show somebody something from the space program, and they are fascinated by it".
