Unlike the moon, which we have been gazing at for millennia, the first time humankind got to see the Earth in its entirety as a blue marble floating in space was in 1972 with NASA’s Apollo 17 mission.

From a distance, the Earth is just a pale blue dot. But you can see it up close, right here at The Coro.
