Geminid Meteors Observed from Mount Balang, China
Dec. 26, 2014: Shown here are meteors from the annual Geminid meteor shower raining down on the mountains of the Sichuan Province of China. Despite a bright quarter Moon rising around midnight (at far left), sky enthusiasts near Mount Balang in Siguniangshan National Park counted as many as 150 meteors per hour. At left is brilliant Jupiter, Sirius is at center and Orion at top center.

Earthrise! | NASA Apollo 8
This view of the rising Earth greeted the Apollo 8 astronauts as they came from behind the Moon after the fourth nearside orbit. The photo is displayed here in its original orientation, though it is more commonly viewed with the lunar surface at the bottom of the photo. Earth is about five degrees left of the horizon in the photo. The unnamed surface features on the left are near the eastern limb of the Moon as viewed from Earth. The lunar horizon is approximately 780 kilometers from the spacecraft. Height of the photographed area at the lunar horizon is about 175 kilometers.
