On Aug. 23, 1966, humanity welcomed its first view of Earth taken by a spacecraft from the vicinity of the Moon. The photo was transmitted to Earth by NASA’s unmanned Lunar Orbiter I — a robotic surveyor sent into orbit to map possible lunar landing sites years before the Apollo program — and was received at a NASA tracking station near Madrid, Spain. In celebration of the 45th anniversary of the landmark transmission, LIFE.com presents other remarkable, moving, humbling photos of our lonely blue and green planet taken from the depths of space.

The Department of Homeland Security recently issued a chilling report: Americans, it said, can expect an upsurge in “rightwing extremism” from White nationalists, militias, and groups like the Ku Klux Klan. The Klan, of course, has had a hand in some of the nation’s most infamous acts of racial terror and murder.

Photographer Anthony Karen has documented the modern-day Klan in their homes, at rallies, and at Klan gatherings, taking us deep inside a world we would otherwise never see — a world most of us might not even want to know about. The unnerving photos featured here, exclusively on LIFE.com, are from his book, “The Invisible Empire: Ku Klux Klan.” “The majority of people I’ve come across,” Karen told LIFE, “you’d only know they were in the Klan if they decided to share that.”
