"Earthrise" First Photo, 45th Anniversary

Where were you when you first saw this photo?

On December 24, 1968, the first photograph of "Earthrise" was taken by William (Bill) Anders, an astronaut on Apollo 8 Mission, as they  circled above the moon.

As you watch this video, the actual conversation between the astronauts can be heard as they see earthrise for the first time.

And, here's a more recent 20 minute HD full screen film of our beautiful Earth...

Beautiful film, relaxing music, enjoy!
