    Description

    A symbol of the environmental movement

    Apollo 17 "Blue Marble" Original NASA "Red Number" Color Photo, AS17-148-22727, with the Two Images Following in Sequence. Rare vintage 10" x 8" chromogenic prints on Kodak fiber-based paper bearing the "A Kodak Paper" watermark on the versos. This is one of the two or three most famous images from the Apollo space program. It pictures the Earth from a distance of about 28,000 miles, taken by the crew as they were flying toward the moon. Also included are the two photos taken immediately succeeding this one, 22728 and 22729, which are very similar. Image 22727 has a couple of surface smudges, otherwise very fine. The other two are excellent. From the family collection of the late Donald T. Hamilton, a NASA engineer of 40+ years' service.
