"The Earth is the most beautiful sight in space, with all its colors of lands, seas, and clouds," said Charles Duke. "Looking at it against the blackness of space was almost a religious experience for me."

Description:
Ken Mattingly (American, b. 1936) Planet Earth, Apollo 16, April 1972. Large-format vintage chromogenic print on fiber-based Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image/sheet size 13 7/8 x 11 in. (35.0 x 27.7 cm), unmatted. Condition: Subtle color shifting, minor wear at corners, blue ballpoint pen mark u.l. N.B. The twenty-four Apollo astronauts from Apollo 8 in December 1968 to Apollo 17 in December 1972 were the only men in history to see the Earth as a sphere hanging in space. "To stand back and look at the entirety of North America is not something you can take for granted. Yet, here's a picture to show you that it was done. It wasn't taken by a black box or a camera we sent out in a satellite into space. It was done by this guy right here who thinks and acts, puts on his pants one leg at a time just like you. How did it feel for that guy to be there, to take the picture? That's another thing. The pictures alone don't do the whole job--they don't properly record the emotional or the spiritual part of the history that took place--but they sure do carry their share of the load,' said Apollo 17 Commander Eugene Cernan (Schick and Van Haaften, p. 60). The NASA negative number is AS16-118-18880. Literature: Light, plate 117; Chaikin, Voices, p. 170.

Description:
Ken Mattingly (American, b. 1936) The Earth after trans-lunar insertion burn, centered on North America, Apollo 16, April 1972. NASA HQ caption numbered 'AS16-118-18873' on the verso. Vintage chromogenic print on resin-coated Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image size 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 in. (18.9 x 24.0 cm), unmatted. Condition: Good. N.B. Until now the Apollo astronauts were the only space voyagers to escape the gravitational sphere of influence of the Earth and to travel to another world. 'I hadn't been in the air an hour, and I knew I was in deep trouble,' said Ken Mattingly. 'Because my mind was being overwhelmed with one extraordinarily impressive view, image, picture and as soon as you got that and you said, 'Look at that!' And then, shit, here came another one that was even more impressive! And I remember we were hardly out of Earth orbit when I said, you know, I'm in trouble' (Chaikin, Voices, p. 171).

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Ken Mattingly (American, b. 1936), Charles Duke (American, b. 1935), or John Young (American, b. 1930) Two views of the lunar horizon over the rugged landscape of the farside highlands, Apollo 16, April 1972. Numbered 'NASA AS16-120-19204' and 'NASA AS16-118-18933' (NASA MSC), respectively, in red on the recto u.l. margin. Vintage chromogenic prints on fiber-based Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image sizes to 7 1/8 x 7 1/8 in. (18.0 x 18.0 cm), unmatted. Condition: Minor wear to several corners of first print. N.B. Using the 250mm telephoto lens, Mattingly photographed the stunning view from the Command Spaceship Casper as it orbited the far side of the moon at an altitude of about 120 kilometers. Shown are the lunar horizon over Crater Belyaev (first image) and Crater Van Gent (second image). "I can't imagine bouncing across the surface of the Moon being as personally exhilarating as being solo in a spacecraft on the back side of the Moon... There's nobody there but me!' exclaimed Ken Mattingly. 'And there's no noise, except the little electronic fans going poof. And you turn some music on, and you watch this panorama go by, and it's absolutely mind boggling" (quoted in Chaikin, Voices, p. 106).
