"Earthrise is the name given to a photograph of Earth taken by astronaut William Anders in 1968 during the Apollo 8 mission. Nature photographer Galen Rowell declared it ‘the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.’ 

This had been preceded by the crude 1966 black-and-white raster earthrise image taken by the Lunar Orbiter 1 robotic probe.

An audio recording of the event is available with transcription which allows the event to be followed closely. Excerpt:

Anders: Oh my God! Look at that picture over there! There’s Earth coming up. Wow, is that pretty.

Borman: Hey, don’t take that, it’s not scheduled [joking].

Anders: [laughs] You got a color film, Jim? Hand me that roll of color quick, would you…

Lovell: Oh man, that’s great.”
