PlanetWatch: It’s our turn on watch
The PlanetWatch Group is a new project of TDS Environmental Media. We are a group of writers and journalists telling stories about planet Earth. We also look for important human stories, since the happy success of each depends on the other.
PlanetWatch begins for a 10-year-old-boy
I was 10 when Apollo 8 transmitted the first grainy, lo-res, black-and-white images back to Earth of Earthrise. December 24, 1968. It blew everyone’s mind. The first glimpse of Earth from space. There we all were.
I’ll never forget walking outside with my family that cold Colorado Christmas Eve. We all looked up that night at the moon, hanging high and bright in the sky, and saw our reflection.
For me, there’s never been a clearer connection between my tiny little spot on this earth, the moon there, hovering in the sky, and everything in between.
