How Apollo 8 Astronauts took the famous 'Earthrise' photograph

12th Dec 2018

In December 1968 Apollo 8 went into orbit around the Moon.

However, the astronauts on board were more impressed by the sight of the Earth rising in the distance than by their close-up view of the lunar surface.

Colonel Frank Borman, Commander of Apollo 8, remembers the flight.

Witness: The stories of our times told by the people who were there.
