Here is a look at commemorative patches that were created in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 8 and humanity's first direct look at Earthrise:
  • Apollo 8 'Earthrise' 50th Anniversary Stamp Patch

    Artist Tim Gagnon designed this limited edition patch, which was offered as part of Constellation's Earthrise 50th Anniversary Celebration at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex on Dec. 21, 2018. The patch was inspired by the 1969 U.S. postage stamp.

  • Bill and Valerie Anders commissioned this patch, which attendees received at the Anders' Apollo 8 50th anniversary gala at the San Diego Air and Space Museum on Dec. 20, 2018. The patch highlights the International Astronomical Union's recent naming of a crater as "Anders Earthrise."
