Amazing Things Caught on Camera for the First Time


There's a first for everything—and sometimes, when we're lucky enough, it gets caught on film.

A picture is worth a thousand words…

…and this is especially true when said picture includes never-before-seen images. Here are some discoveries and aviation breakthroughs, that have provided stunning pictures

The first photograph of a black hole

In '2017', fifty years after astronomer John Wheeler coined the term “black hole” 'to' describe extremely dense objects possessing such strong gravitational pull that even light cannot escape (the existence of which Einstein had first predicted 51 years before that), a team of scientists actually captured a black hole’s image on film. But it took another two years for the image 'to' make its way to the public—because photographing a black hole involved a worldwide network of radio telescopes from which all the data had 'to' be strategically assembled into a cohesive whole.

The first solar eclipse ever photographed

A total solar eclipse (in which the position of the moon causes a total obstruction of the sun from somewhere on Earth) occurs somewhere on Earth about once every year or two, but the location from which any given solar eclipse is visible can be so remote that no human is present to see it. Nevertheless, a Victorian-age photographer managed to capture the first image of a total solar eclipse in July 1860, just over 20 years after the very first photograph of anything was ever taken.

First photo of an airplane in flight

Photos of airplanes flying are no big deal nowadays, but back in 1903, aviation was still so new that no one had ever captured an image of an airplane flying, let alone taking off. But that’s precisely what happened at Kitty Hawk when Orville Wright arranged for this photo 'to' be taken of the first controlled, sustained, and powered heavier-than-air flight.

The first photo of an underwater atomic bomb

On July 16, 1945, an atomic bomb was detonated for the first time ever in Alamogordo, New Mexico. It was only a test but led 'to' the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki less than a month later. One year later, the U.S. military wanted 'to' test what would happen if they detonated an atomic bomb underwater. This photo shows the detonating of the bomb called “Helen of Bikini” in the middle of Bikini Atoll, part of the Marshall Islands—the first atomic mushroom cloud that rose out of the water.

Northern and Southern Auroras, simultaneously

It was long suspected that the auroras of the north and south were near mirror images of one another, but it wasn’t until October 2002 that a photograph taken by NASA‘s orbiting Polar spacecraft confirmed this.

The first time a plane broke the sound barrier

The reason this photo looks unreal is that what it’s capturing had never ever been captured on film before: It’s the moment a Navy jet fighter plane crashed through the sound barrier. As the plane accelerated towards the speed of sound, shock waves caused a cloud to form, which the plane broke through upon reaching the speed of sound, according to the Acoustics Graduate Program at Penn State University.

First photo of a human on the moon

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon as well as the first human 'to' take a photo while standing on the moon. But, alas, Armstrong was not the first human to be photographed on the moon. That distinction went to Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, who was the second human to walk on the moon but wasn’t holding the camera. Both men left footprints on the moon that are still clearly visible.

Since we didn't have a colour television, my family went 'to' watch the broadcast at my Aunt and Uncle's place. They gave me an engraved silver charm as a keepsake, which I still have.

What images of firsts, do you remember seeing?

That pic of the plane breaking the speed of sound is really wild! I never knew that kind of thing happened.

La llegada del hombre a la luna sigue siendo el evento más visto por TV en directo... y lo recuerdo aún. Mucha ansiedad esperando el alunizaje. Saludos

I thought it was pretty spectacular too! I had heard about it but hadn't seen a picture.

Could you imagine being the photographer who was fortunate enough to capture these amazing pictures. Thank you for sharing them with us.

I was thinking 🤔 the same thing while putting them together. Makes me very humble when I look at me photographic efforts.

Some pretty amazing images. I'm afraid I was only 3 for Apollo 11 but I do remember being glued to the TV watching later missions. I do have an audio recording of the lunar landing on lp. Being an ex RCAF guy I'm drawn to the sonic boom picture, conditions have to be just right for the shock-wave to be visible like that.

Glad you liked them. Your military background must give you a different perspective and insight. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek 😊.

I remember watching Apollo 11 landing on a black and white TV at school.
Grade 5 I believe. It was great. Thanks for the interesting information.
