In December 1968, the crew of Apollo 8 took this famous image of the Earth rising over the lunar horizon. It was one of the first images showing Earth as it appears from the Moon. The Moon rotates on its axis at the same rate as it orbits the Earth. As a result, for someone stationed on the Moon, the Earth is always in the same position in the local lunar sky.
