Earth from Space

Earth from Space

I saw this picture in a popular magazine when I was 14, courtesy of the Apollo 8 mission. These were the first photographs of Earth ever, and they were stunning. I've been enthralled by a great many pictures of space since then, but the effect of this one, looking down as it were on the home planet, has stayed with me.
