"Tranquility Base here, The Eagle has landed" were the first-ever words heard from the moon, four days after the Apollo 11 spacecraft left the earth, touching down on July 20, 1969.

Neil Armstrong's private collection of space memorabilia, including items he flew to the moon on the Apollo 11, will be available for purchase in a series of auctions come November.

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.

Featured in the auction are items which were taken to the moon including a series of flags - representing not only the U.S. but also the United Nations and a number of individual American states. They include a silk flag commemorating the 1969 centennial of Purdue University, Armstrong's alma mater, which was taken on the mission.

"I don't think he spent much time thinking about it", Armstrong said.
