Earthrise - 1968
Earthrise, photograph, by Bill Anders, 1968
The crew of Apollo 8 was armed with still and movie cameras to photograph the Moon; but the most enduring image
of their mission is this photograph of their own home, planet Earth.
According to Anders, the astronauts saw the horizon vertically—not horizontally—with the lunar surface to the right.
