Title: Earth - Full Disk (Western Hemisphere)

Source: Apollo 8

Information: A striking view from the Apollo 8 spacecraft showing nearly the entire Western Hemisphere from the mouth of the St. Lawrence River including nearby Newfoundland, extending to Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of South America. Central America is clearly outlined. Nearly all of South America is covered by clouds, except the high Andes Mountain chain along the west coast. A small portion of the bulge of west Africa shows along the sunset terminator at the right.
