"Great Siberian Explosion of 1908", an original oil painting by master space artist Chesley Bonestell from 1977. 20 x 16 inches, framed. Unpublished, but similar to Figure 22 in "Beyond Jupiter," with Chesley's notes on the back. I bought it from Chesley soon after he painted it, displayed it on my office wall at Griffith Observatory until it became too valuable, and it's been in climate-controlled storage since -- in new condition. Now up for sale to finance a new telescope -- one of the very few Bonestell's still in private hands. $20,000 includes insured professional packing and shipping within USA.
