James McDivitt Looks Out the Window – Sees a UFO
Luana D. Rubin
Boulder, Colorado, USA
Brigadier General James Alton “Jim” McDivitt was a Gemini and Apollo astronaut. He commanded the Gemini 4 flight, during which he took a photo of what is considered to be the only UFO ever spotted on a Mercury, Gemini or Apollo mission. This quilt is inspired by a photo of Jim in the Lunar Module, perhaps as he is contemplating what he saw outside his window?
Fused applique and machine stitching.
