AS17-148-22742 (7-19 Dec. 1972) --- Most of Australia (center) and part of Antarctica are visible in this photo of a three-quarters Earth, recorded with a 70mm handheld Hasselblad camera using a 250mm lens. The three astronauts aboard the Command and Service Modules (CSM) were in the trans-lunar coast phase of the journey when one of them snapped this shot. While astronauts Eugene A. Cernan commander, and Harrison H. Schmitt, lunar module pilot, descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Challenger" to explore the Taurus-Littrow region of the moon, astronaut Ronald E. Evans, command module pilot, remained with the CSM "America" in lunar orbit.
