Earthrise Revisited

December 24, 2013
To commemorate the 45th anniversary of the first color image of the Earth ever taken by a person in lunar orbit, NASA has released a new video simulation of the events that led to the iconic ‘Earthrise’ photograph.

Earthrise, which served as the cover photo of Time Magazine’s ‘Great Images of the 20th Century’ and was also featured on the front of Life’s ‘100 Photographs That Changed the World,’ was taken by Apollo 8 Commander Frank Borman and crew members William A. Anders and James A. Lovell on December 24, 1968.
