On July 20, 11 a.m. EDT, bidding on more than 170 artifacts from NASA’s Gemini, Apollo and Mercury missions will commence. Hosted by Sotheby’s New York, the auction coincides with the 48th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing — and includes memorabilia from the mission, like flight plans, detailed reports, signed photographs and Neil Armstrong’s lunar sample bag, which is expected to fetch $2–4 million.

The auction, which begins on Thursday, can be previewed in full on eBay and sales can tracked on Sotheby’s website.
