In addition to conducting science experiments, collecting lunar specimens and walking on the moon, Apollo astronauts also had another important job while floating (and walking) around space: taking pictures. Equipped with medium-format Hasselblad and 35 mm film cameras, they made thousands of images of what they saw from space. It wasn't until recently (October 2015) that many of these were made publicly available. 

In collaboration with Eric Jones and Ken Glover, who had been compiling images for the Apollo Lunar Surface JournalKipp Teague began the Project Apollo Archive in 1999 and recently added many more high-resolution images to the collection.

These images, from Apollo 7 through Apollo 15 (1968-71),  are part of the public domain and are available for public use. Click here to see the entire archive on Flickr.
