Across the Moonscape

How far we’ve come!
How much we’ve seen!
To imagine this is a place
Where humanity has been!

It’s almost too much
I can hardly believe
That the moon was a goal
We could really achieve

Infinite God
Finite space
Viewing Earth
Across the moonscape

This is part of my “Inspired by Space” Series.

Title: First View of Earth from Moon

Description: The world’s first view of Earth taken by a spacecraft from the vicinity of the Moon. The photo was transmitted to Earth by the United States Lunar Orbiter I and received at the NASA tracking station at Robledo De Chavela near Madrid, Spain. This crescent of the Earth was photographed August 23, 1966 at 16:35 GMT when the spacecraft was on its 16th orbit and just about to pass behind the Moon.
