The planet Earth seemed a long way off in this scene because it was — about a quarter of a million miles, in fact. From the Moon, the Earth appeared as a beautiful blue-and-white marble with occasional small orange areas, which were deserts.
The Moon itself was a foreboding place when viewed from orbit, mostly gray with stark, angular mountains and deep, rough canyons and craters. It was as if nature had pounded it again and again with a big, big hammer.
In contrast, our Earth was beautiful — all shiny and bright. It was hard to believe that everybody I had ever known—or seen on TV—and the places they lived and played were all on that little blue-and-white marble. Even today, it’s still hard to believe. - AB

ABOUT EMAILING FOR PRICE:
1. Once an item is "sold out" and only available thru "secondary" or "resale" sources, pricing can vary day by day or hour by hour as resales occur. In such instances, the prices you see on our website may represent the last of those items sold as opposed to today's price. That is why we often tell you to "email" for pricing. And that is why prices often change without notice.
2. We apologize that there are some artists who do not allow on-line listings of their prices.
In either event, when you email for pricing, we ask that you include your location and phone number in order to get back to you during appropriate hours so we can accomodate the needs of people different time zones. We do not share your information with anyone. If you don't hear back from us within 24 hours, please check your spam folder or feel free to call us at 440-255-1200 / 800-621-1141.
If you are having difficulty using our "email for price" forms, please call us or switch to another internet browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.)
