sort of grayish beach sand...'

When the spacecraft came out from behind the Moon, Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, William Anders witnessed "Earthrise" for the first time in human history.  It was Anders who first saw the Earth cresting the lunar horizon. Initially, he took a black and white photo, but then asked Lovell for a color film.  It was this second photo that was chosen by Life magazine as one of its hundred photos of the century.
