Note: The official NASA description of the photograph is incorrect, and the image is a composite with the full moon in the background added later. On the morning of November 9, 1967 the moon was at first quarter. The flame trench at Pad 39A was oriented along the north-south axis and the rocket was south of the Launch Umbilical Tower. This means this photograph was taken facing southwest, so for the lighting to be correct it had to have been taken at sunset, not sunrise, unless the original image has been "flipped" horizontally for the sake of artistic composition. Additionally, by pre-dawn on November 9th, the rocket was fully fueled for a 7:00 AM EST launch, and would at that point have been wreathed in venting cryogenic gases, whereas none are visible in this photo.
