Title: Earth rise as photographed by Apollo 16
Description:
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.
