The Most Mind-Blowing Images Ever Taken of Earth from Space - Gizmodo
May 23, 2022 1 min, 1 sec

Hard to believe, but this photo of Earth, captured on October 24, 1946, was taken 11 years before the Soviet Union launched Sputnik to low Earth orbit.

Our first view of Earth as seen from space, sadly, was taken by a camera mounted to a modified V-2 rocket (yes, the same V-2 rocket used by the Nazis to terrorize Britons during the Second World War).

NASA’s Lunar Orbiter 1 was the first spacecraft in history to capture a view of Earth from the vicinity of the Moon, which it did on August 23, 1966.

This iconic view of Earth, with the rugged lunar landscape in the foreground, was captured on December 24, 1968 during the crewed Apollo 8 mission to the Moon.

Voyager 1 was 7.25 million miles (11.66 million kilometers) from Earth at the time.

The image, captured by the NASA rover’s Mastcam, was taken around 80 minutes after sunset, at which point Earth was the brightest object in the sky

The Red Planet was 99 million miles (160 million kilometers) from Earth when the image was taken

The NASA probe was so far at the time—898 million miles (1.46 billion km)—that Earth and the Moon appear as a single dot

An annotated view of the image shows the location of Mars and Venus, along with Earth and the Moon
