The gloves and visor Neil Armstrong wore during his walk on the moon are on display for a short time at the Smithsonian Institution.
The gloves and the visor Neil Armstrong wore during his first walk on the moon are on display at the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum's Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, the Huffington Post reported.
The museum began the two week exhibit on Tuesday, according to the Huffington Post.
Smithsonian Magazine's blog has more information on the gloves:
"The objects also reflect the cutting edge technologies first employed on the historic Apollo mission. The gloves, for example, include blue silicone fingertips and Chromel-R, a stainless steel, high chromium fabric, wrapping around the hands."
Armstrong's public memorial service will be held on Sept. 13 at the Washington National Cathedral.
