Caption: Earth. Artwork of the Earth, as seen from the surface of the Moon. The Earth's north-south axis is seen running horizontally here; the major land mass (yellow/green) is Africa. Snowy Antarctica can be distinguished at the South Pole amongst swirling cloud formations. The moon orbits the Earth at an average distance of 384,400 kilometres. This artwork is based on images from the Apollo 17 mission, which in 1972 became the last American Apollo mission to land on the Moon.
