Earth Seen from Mars

Our Planet, as Martians Might See it[1]

Greetings Earthlings! This is your planet and its Moon as seen from Mars, about 127 million miles away. The composite image, released by NASA, was created using a special camera aboard the agency’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which floats about 180 miles above the red planet.

Earth and the Moon appear close in this image, but that is because the Moon is actually just behind Earth. To make this picture, scientists combined two separate exposures taken on November 20,. 2016
