I haven't heard from anyone in a while so I decided to send this out.

Most of you know of the image of rising Earth over the Lunar horizon taken by the Apollo 8 crew member William Anders on December24,  1968. 
A lot of you may have experienced the event live or remember the news articles. I, unfortunately, was out of the country at the time but even then I heard about it after a short time later. 
It's an amazing picture.
Here is a recording taken from the LRO (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) during that moment when the historic shot was almost not taken.
Here is the link to see and hear it all:    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dE-vOscpiNc
