The Moon from orbit and The Earth from space
The view of Earth taken by Apollo 15 during TLC from the distance of about 25,000 to 30,000 nautical miles from Earth. South America can be seen from the center to the left. Central America is in the upper center with The Gulf of Mexico and Florida to the lower right of it. North America is in the upper right. The north-west part of Africa is in the lower right
