About the Event
It was a profound moment on Dec 7th, 1972 when we realized that we, humanity, had climbed from the trees, across the savannah, and over time, invented the technology to propel us to the stars! It is why this simple picture taken by the Apollo 17 mission matters because it shows both our vast history and our vast potential.
The Blue Marble image is often credited with sparking the global environmentalist movement as it viscerally portrayed the Earth's fragility and immediately elevated interest in climate change and climate science studies. All this is represented in #EarthsFirstSelfie!
IT IS TIME FOR A CELEBRATION OF THAT PIVOTAL MOMENT
Blue Marble Night is a night where we can all come together to recognize the fragility and majesty of this pale blue dot where we live. Our inaugural event will be virtual and feature testimonials from throughout the world about how the Blue Marble photo in particular and the Overview Effect in general changed peoples’ lives
