EARTH RISE – Apollo 8 crew. Four photographs. 1968. Vintage photographs of the Earth and the Moon as seen by the first lunar voyagers, including “Earth Rise.” These photographs were taken by the Apollo 8 crew, the first to orbit the moon, and include the profoundly important view of “Earth Rise,” as the Earth moved above the Moon’s horizon during Christmas Eve, 1968. Four vintage color photographs, 8 by 10 inches, full-frame Hasselblad photographs, images 7.25 inches square. Each has red NASA identification numbers at upper left corners. “A Kodak Paper” stamps on versos.

NASA AS8-16-2588 taken a few hours after the Translunar Injection (TLI) burn to head toward the Moon. Both sides of the Atlantic Ocean are visible, most prominently the west coast of Africa. Brazil is partially seen under broken clouds at the bottom center. The full circular sphere of the Earth is slowly emerging as the Apollo 8 crew moves away toward the Moon.
