Earth from Apollo 8

This is how the Earth looked as photographed from a point near the Moon by the Apollo 8 astronauts. The Earth fills less than one percent of the frame exposed through 80mm lens. North is approximately vertical. Kinda lonely, isn t it

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the awe-inspiring view of our home planet, Earth, as seen from Apollo 8. Taken by the courageous astronauts on their historic lunar mission, this image captures a unique perspective that few have ever witnessed. The vastness of space is beautifully juxtaposed against the delicate beauty of our blue planet. Despite being taken from a point near the Moon, Earth appears minuscule in comparison to its surroundings. In fact, it fills less than one percent of the frame captured through an 80mm lens. This humbling realization emphasizes just how small and fragile our world truly is within the grand scheme of the universe. The orientation of this photograph reveals North to be approximately vertical, providing us with a sense of direction amidst this cosmic expanse. However, what strikes most profoundly is not only the breathtaking sight but also a feeling that accompanies it - loneliness. As we gaze upon this remarkable image, we can't help but feel isolated and insignificant in relation to the vastness surrounding us. It serves as a reminder that despite all our accomplishments and conflicts on Earth's surface, we are ultimately part of something much larger than ourselves. This print invites us to reflect upon our place in the cosmos and appreciate both the beauty and fragility of our precious planet. It encourages us to cherish every moment spent together on this tiny speck floating through space – for indeed, there is no place quite like home.
