    (Note I didn't say "Where in the world...")

    Extra credit if you can name who took this picture and how many miles from the earth he was.

    Hi Ken,i've no idea as i'm "spaced out" when it comes to these things.

    This photo was taken in 1972 by one of the crew members of Apollo 17!

    It's a very famous photo.

    I don't know who took it, or how many miles away he was at the time.

    I also don't know the exact date.

    Thanks for making my lousy day a bit brighter!

    You got it. Hard to believe it was taken on this day, 34 years ago!

    Wonder how long he had to wait to get the picture developed.

    Well, shucks. I thought it was a picture of a marble.
