The photo taken right after the famous "Earthrise."

    Apollo 8 and Apollo 6 Official "Red Number" Color Glossy Photos, Group of Twelve. A grouping of original NASA and MSC 10" x 8" color glossies, all with the early red number captions. Three are from the Apollo 8 mission to the moon and include: (1) AS8-14-2384. This is the image taken just after (and is very similar to) the legendary "Earthrise" photo. Pristine condition.; (2) As8-16-2616. The moon crater Langrenus as taken on December 24, 1968, from 150 nautical miles up. Excellent condition with just a tiny piece of attached paper; and (3) AS8-16-2593. A photo of Earth, showing nearly the entire western hemisphere. Excellent save for some scattered pieces of extraneous paper stuck to the surface. All of the Apollo 8 images have full printed original captions taped to the back.

    There are nine images from Apollo 6 that launched on April 4, 1968, the last of the unmanned test flights. Photo numbers as follows: AS6-2-937, AS6-2-1433, AS6-2-1437, AS6-2-1442, AS6-2-1445, AS6-2-1449, AS6-2-1455; AS6-2-1462; and AS6-2-1468. All in excellent condition with blank backs.
