6The Blue Marble (1972) photo is one of the earliest and probably the most famous full-disk true-color images of the Earth, taken on 7 December 1972 by the crew of Apollo-17 on their way to the Moon.

8The first Apollo-8 Earthrise (1968) photos were taken by the crew of Apollo-8 from lunar orbit on 24 December 1968. When rotated -135 degrees to put north at the top, the day/night terminator crosses the African continent (western Africa and southern Africa are visible in the image just to the west of the terminator).
9Other Apollo-11 Earthrise (1969) photos were taken by the Apollo-11 astronauts on 20 July 1969 when in orbit around the Moon in the command module. Early in the 5th orbit, they noticed the Earth rising above the lunar horizon. At around 0402 UTC, one of the astronauts (it is not known which one) took a series of photographs of the Apollo-11 Earthrise (1969) as the command module continued in its lunar orbit. It was moving toward the position of Earth. This animation, based on a series of photographs taken from the command module, gives some idea of the beautiful Earthrise that the astronauts saw. Their motion toward the lunar horizon caused the Earth to rise quickly from their point of view. An Earthrise seen from a fixed point on the lunar surface would take place much more slowly.
10Manama Mi1089A and Mi1089B are listed incorrectly in more than one catalog as having a face value of 1R, instead of the 2R face value on the stamp.
11The Apollo-10 Earthrise (1969) photo was taken by the Apollo-10 crew from lunar orbit in May 1969.
12
13Although USA C76 shows an Earthrise, the location of the Apollo-11 Moon landing, not being near the edge of the Moon as seen from the Earth, would not allow an Earthrise to be visible on the horizon of the Moon. Therefore, the existence of an Earthrise on many postal items showing men on the Moon is due to artistic license.
