Discover the Iconic Earthrise Photo: A Tribute to William "Bill" Anders

Meet our Earthrise print, an iconic treasure captured by the legendary astronaut William "Bill" Anders during the Apollo 8 mission. This stunning image is more than just a photograph—it's a powerful symbol of our planet's beauty and fragility, and we at Astrography Studio have breathed new life into it.

The Earthrise Photo: The Moment that Redefined Our Perspective


On December 24, 1968, during the Apollo 8 mission, William "Bill" Anders captured the iconic Earthrise photograph. As the first crewed spacecraft to orbit the Moon, Apollo 8 gave humanity its first view of Earth from the far side of the Moon. Anders, tasked with photographing the lunar surface, turned his camera toward Earth and captured the breathtaking image of our planet rising above the lunar horizon.

This photograph, known as Earthrise, showcased the vibrant blues and whites of Earth contrasting against the dark, barren lunar landscape. It was the first time humans had witnessed and photographed Earth in its entirety from space. The image highlighted the planet’s isolation and fragility, providing a powerful visual representation of just how small and delicate our world really is.

Unplanned Opportunity

William Anders had one main objective: taking detailed photographs of the Moon's surface. However, fate had a different plan. As the Apollo spacecraft emerged from the Moon's dark side, the crew unexpectedly witnessed a breathtaking sight—Earth rising majestically over the lunar horizon. This unplanned visual feast inspired Anders to act.

Quick Thinking

Overwhelmed by the awe-inspiring view, Anders knew he had to seize the moment. He swiftly switched his camera's film from black-and-white to color to immortalize the scene.

His spontaneous exclamation, "Oh my God, look at that picture over there! Here's the Earth coming up. Wow, is that pretty!" captured the essence of his amazement. Despite Commander Frank Borman's humorous reminder to stick to the mission, Anders instinctively captured the iconic view.

It's Earthrise' original orientation:

A Spontaneous Masterpiece

Although capturing Earthrise wasn't part of the original plan, Anders' quick thinking transformed it into a spontaneous act of creative genius. The photograph, depicting the stark contrast between the Moon's barren surface and the vibrant Earth, has become an iconic symbol of environmental awareness and our shared human experience.

The Earthrise Effect

The Earthrise photograph had an immediate and lasting cultural and environmental impact:

  • Sparked Earth Day: The image played a crucial role in launching the modern environmental movement, directly inspiring the creation of Earth Day in 1970.
  • Fostered Global Unity: Earthrise highlighted the interconnectedness and vulnerability of our planet, fostering a sense of global unity and shared responsibility.
  • Inspired Artists and Activists: The photograph transcended science and technology, inspiring countless artists, poets, musicians, and environmentalists.
  • Shifted Perspectives: It changed the narrative of space exploration from merely technological feats to a holistic endeavour of environmental stewardship and global awareness.

"We came all this way to explore the Moon, and the most important thing is that we discovered the Earth" – William "Bill" Anders

The Astrography Studio Difference

At Astrography Studio, we are committed to excellence. We’ve taken great care to meticulously remaster the Earthrise photo using state-of-the-art technology. Here’s what makes our prints stand out:

Remastering Earthrise by Astrography

The iconic Earthrise photo was captured with a Hasselblad 500EL camera on Kodak Ektachrome 70mm analog color film, which was meticulously scanned. Considering the era, location, and technology used to take the photo, the original scan limited us from producing large-format prints

Our mission was to remaster this historic photo to showcase its full glory even on the largest prints, exceeding one meter in size, with impeccable sharpness.

  • We at Astrography Studio minimized noise and calibrated the color to perfection by leveraging the specific characteristics of the camera and film.
  • Our experts utilized next-generation AI and advanced digital retouching techniques to recover previously impossible details.
