Earthrise

Feel free to skip ahead to 2:30 on this one and behold a recreation of the first ever "Earthrise" witnessed by humans. Listen to the actual onboard audio of the Apollo 8 astronauts in December 1968 and image yourself alongside them, fumbling about for that roll of color film.

Unlike sunrises on Earth, Earthrises seen from the moon are very slow - it takes about 48 hours for the Earth to clear its diameter.
