University of Houston-Clear Lake is hosting a special screening of the award-winning film “Earthrise.”

“Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 Astronauts, the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores the beauty, awe and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space.

“This iconic image had a powerful impact on the astronauts and the world, offering a perspective that transcended national, political and religious boundaries. Told 50 years later, Earthrise compels us to remember this shift and to reflect on the Earth as a shared home.”

The film is approximately 30 minutes long and will be followed by a Q&A with Director Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee and scientists from NASA.

Vaughan-Lee is the creator of numerous award-winning films and documentaries that have been featured on PBS, National Geographic and film festivals around the world. He is also the founder of Global Oneness Project: https://www.globalonenessproject.org/about-project and founder of the Spiritual Ecology Fellowship (http://www.spiritualecologyfellowship.org/)

The event is free and open to the public. Free parking is available.
