CDR Apollo 8
December 1968 

In this image, Borman has inscribed a conversation between Anders, Lovell, and himself, who had been taking images of the lunar surface, when they caught sight of the Earth on the horizon, which prompted Borman to exclaim: "Oh, my God! Look at that picture over there! Here's the earth coming up. Wow, is that pretty!"
