Earthrise Apollo 8


December 2018, when this scene was painted, marked the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 8 mission, which was the first time humans had traveled around the Moon. After passing around the far side of the Moon for the first time in history, the three Apollo 8 crew members were privileged to witness the glorious sight of the majestic blue Earth rising over the grey lunar horizon, a sight no human being had ever directly seen before. Chris Calle’s painting captures the vibrant colors of the Earth, contrasted against the starkness of the Moon, unlike any of the photographs taken during the Apollo 8 mission.

Canvas edition of 250. Signed and numbered.
