NEW YORK (AP) — Buzz Aldrin’s jacket worn on his historic first
mission
to the moon’s surface in 1969 has been auctioned off to
a bidder for nearly $2.8 million.

The $2,772,500 paid for the Apollo 11 Inflight Coverall Jacket is
the highest for any American space-flown artifact sold at auction, according to Sotheby’s, which handled the sale. The unidentified
winning bidder, who participated by phone, outlasted several
others in a bidding that spanned almost 10 minutes.
