christmas eve 2

40 years ago today US Astronaut William Anders took this photograph during historic Apollo 8 mission,the first manned voyage to moon. This photo was given the name "Earthrise".The photograph was taken from lunar orbit with a Hasselblad camera. Initially, before finding a suitable 70mm color film, Anders took a black and white photo of the scene, with the earth still being far closer to the horizon.

As I look at the small planet we call home, I am reminded of the incredible love that the Creator of the entire universe has for us.

May you have a wonderful Christmas.

Here's a link to Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and William Anders reading from Genesis 1 on Christmas Eve
