    Description

    Apollo 8: "Earthrise" Original NASA "Red Number" Color Photo, AS8-14-2383. A vintage chromogenic 10" x 8" print on Kodak fiber-based paper bearing the "A Kodak Paper" watermark on the verso. This is one of the most iconic images of the entire twentieth century, taken from lunar orbit in December 1968, of the Earth as it rises over the horizon. These originals are rare and very desirable. Corners are sharp and the number is clear and bright. This is a fine example worthy of the finest collections. Tiny tear at left edge would mat out, very light surface wear, otherwise very fine. From the collection of NASA employee Linda Perkins (Drysdale) of Palestine, Texas, who served with the Gemini and the Apollo mission projects.
