Earth Rise – Dec 24, 1968

December 24th, 1968. Three Americans disappear behind the moon for the first time in history. They fire the service modules big engine to slow their speed, slipping into the orbit of the first non-earth celestial body. They wait, the sun soon lights up the inside of the command module, a sun rise. Nice, but nothing new. Suddenly, before radio communication with earth is restored the earth begins to rise from the horizon of the moon. This is the first earth rise witnessed by humanity.

It sure is pretty!
