First picture of the earth from the moon

On this day in 1966, the world received its first view of Earth when a NASA spacecraft captured the first ever photograph from the surface of the Moon.

The photo was transmitted to Earth by the Lunar Orbiter I and was received at the NASA tracking station at Robledo De Chavela near Madrid, Spain.
