Summary – NASA released a new video on the 45th anniversary of Apollo 8’s historic first-ever trip to the moon – featuring the 1st view of earthrise.
The astronaut’s capture of earthrise
“Where’s the color film? Hurry….”
A – “I can’t see it anymore“…. L -“Here it is over here“
“Take a couple of different settings to be sure….”
Had to represent the ultimate in the question from film-days
“Did it come out?”
Surprisingly, in NASA’s down-to-the-second mission planning
Seeing & shooting the earthrise wasn’t on the agenda
The video shows that the timing, sighting & capture
All were almost accidental
