Earth and Moon from Mars

Earth and Moon, taken on Nov. 20, 2016 by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
Our planet, and its Moon, as Seen From Mars. Some 127 million miles (approx. 205 million km) away, we can see even continents and the clouds of Earth. Dr. Alfred McEwen explained that “In the image, the reddish feature near the middle of the face of Earth is Australia. Vegetation appears red in this image. The red spot in the middle of the Earth is Australia, the one on the top left is Southeast Asia and Antarctica is the bright white blob in the bottom left. Other bright areas are clouds”.
