William Anders, a lunar module pilot and one of the first three people to orbit the moon, died on June 7 at the age of 90. Although you may not know him by name, you’ve probably seen his iconic photograph, “Earthrise,” which was taken during the Apollo 8 mission in 1968. Anders once said that despite all the training and preparation for an exploration of the moon, the Apollo 8 astronauts ended up discovering Earth.

Here are some photography books to help you discover our own planet (and beyond!)
