The Apollo 8 50th Anniversary Earthrise Postage Stamp Patch
5" x 4"
Those of us who remember that magical Christmas Eve 50 years ago will also remember the postage stamp released the next year.
“Earth rise” has arguably become the most iconic photo from the Apollo Program. As William Anders said: “we went to explore the Moon but discovered the Earth.”
In celebration of this 50th Anniversary I wanted to pay tribute to the Mission, the photograph and the stamp.
The patch depicts the Apollo 8 CSM in lunar orbit as the Earth rises above the horizon. APOLLO has a gold L to illustrate the Roman Numeral 50. The 8 is illustrated as in the mission patch.
