BOSTON - John Glenn was the first person to snap a photograph of Earth from outer space. Neil Armstrong took the first picture from the moon's surface.

The original prints of those are among 445 rare photos taken by United States astronauts that are being sold by Skinner Auctioneers and Appraisers starting this week.

The Massachusetts auction house says "The Beauty of Space" is the first-ever US auction to focus solely on vintage photographs produced by NASA astronauts during the heyday of lunar exploration, from 1961 to 1972. The auction goes live on Thursday and runs through Nov 2.
