MAN'S FIRST LOOK AT THE EARTH FROM THE MOON, 23 AUGUST 1966


Silver gelatin print, 11 5/8 by 4 1/4 inches.


Perhaps the most famous of the Lunar Orbiter images, this photo, taken by Lunar Orbiter I after responding to commands sent to it from Earth from a quarter million miles away, was taken from a vantage point of 730 miles above the far side of the Moon, on August 23, 1966.
