MOON CRATER NAMED FOR BILL ANDERS

The International Astronomical Union has named two moon craters in honor of the
Apollo 8 mission to the moon in 1968. The larger is named Anders’ Earthrise and the smaller
8 Homeward. Both are visible in this iconic image shot by Apollo 8 astronaut William Anders.
