I’m not sure about the 1978 image, but the second is a fake. The proportional size of North America is larger, but the relative size of the planet isn’t. Additionally, one should see much more of South America in that second shot. Also, see: http://omnologos.wordpress.com/2012/02/03/nasas-blue-marble-2012-is-a-fake/
