There is a quite famous one from Apollo 17, it has the Earth, the US flag and I think Jack Schmitt.

Ya know, I wondered what the hell they were talking about. Then I dusted my computer screen and sure enough - there are no stars in the pictures.

As far as I know, stars are only visible to astronauts on the night side of the Earth (or moon).
