Executive Order 10942
By virtue of the authority vested in me as President of the United States, and upon the recommendation of the Administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, I hereby amend Executive Order No. 10849 of November 27, 1959, by revising the description of the design of the seal of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as set out in that order to read as follows:
On a disc of the blue sky strewn with white stars, to dexter a large yellow sphere bearing a red flight symbol apex in upper sinister and wings enveloping and casting a brown shadow upon the sphere, all partially encircled with a horizontal white orbit, in sinister a small light-blue sphere; circumscribing the disc a white band edged gold inscribed "National Aeronautics and Space Administration U.S.A." in red letters.
- The White House
- May 19, 1961
- The only change was to alter the color of the shadow from gray-blue to brown.
