Apollo XVI - 1972-04-19  
The Apollo 16 astronauts captured this Earth rise scene with a handheld Hasselblad camera during the second revolution of the Moon. Identifiable craters seen on the moon include Saha, Wyld, and Saenger. Much of the terrain seen here is never visible from the Earth, as the Command Module was just passing into what is known as the dark side or far side of the Moon.
