Caption

Earthrise as seen from above the surface of the Moon, photographed by astronauts on board the Apollo 8 spacecraft as it orbited the Moon in 1968. The lunar horizon is approximately 780 km from the spacecraft. On Earth, 384,000 km away, the sunset terminator bisects Africa. The unnamed surface features in the foreground of the picture are near the eastern limb of the Moon as viewed from Earth.
