Was the video/photos taken during the earth-rise on the Apollo 8 flight the first “blue marble”-esque photo? I’ve heard the image equated to the “earth’s first selfie” and question the technical accuracy of that premise.

*Note to pedants:

Seeing other similar type questions on the site, please understand the concept of what I’m asking, if not the accuracy. Yes, you can only take, at best, a photo of only half the earth at a given time, and yes, during Apollo 8 the Earth was partially in shadow….

No; the first full views of Earth from high-altitude satellites predate Apollo 8 by at least two years.

This web page has a nice progression of pictures of Earth from space from 1959 on.

A Soviet satellite (possibly Molniya-1-3) took this crude picture on May 30, 1966:

enter image description here

DODGE took this picture in September of 1967; this is believed to be the first full-color, full-Earth picture:

enter image description here

ATS-III sent this photo in November of 1967, which famously became the cover image for the first edition of the Whole Earth Catalog (Apollo 8’s much prettier Earthrise photo adorned later editions):

Thank you so much for this. This is the first time I heard of LOIRP and the restored images quite literally made me shudder and get goosebumps… it is amazing to see the high-res images and to realise that Nancy Evans’s decision rescued this treasure of data. This for me ranks with the Prokudin-Gorsky image bank.
