It was fifty years ago today- Christmas Eve 1968- December 24, 1968- astronaut Bill Anders on Apollo 8 took what might be the most significant photograph in history.
Anders: Oh my God! Look at that picture over there! There’s the Earth coming up. Wow, that’s pretty.
Borman: Hey, don’t take that, it’s not scheduled. (joking)
Anders: (laughs) You got a color film, Jim?
Hand me that roll of color quick, would you…
Lovell: Oh man, that’s great!
Wow, what an amazing shot!
