View of gibbous Earth during the outbound trip. Ron Evans mentions this photo and the next one at about 41:15 (mission time from planned launch time) and refers to them as frames 16 (24047) and 17 (24048).
At 65 hours 24 minutes after earth launch (68:04 mission time relative to the planned time of launch), Jack Schmitt tells CapCom Bob Parker, "Okay, Bob, we're getting ready for the ALFMED. I just took a red-filter and a blue-filter pictures, - On frame 41 now, with a 35-millimeter - pictures of the Earth. And I took them one stop smaller - that is, more open - than the lightmeter said, hoping to compensate for the small Earth. The Earth just barely fills the most inner - the innermost circle of the spotmeter. Also, there's a very strong band of clouds, shaped sort of like a narrow fir tree, with a base about 20 degrees of longitude west of Baja California, that extends up, I believe, into the vicinity of Hawaii. And the top terminates in a very strong northern cyclone pattern." 24072 is obviously the red-filter picture.

3: Is this a normal cloud formation that spans almost the entire side of the earth?
