This is what the Earth looks like from Mars

With recent NASA revelations that Mars was once covered at least partially by a ocean, the possibility of life, at least in past is looking great.

Well, thanks to several probes including Curiosity as well as Mars surveyor, we don’t have to wonder.


Here’s what we look like from the surface, to the un-aided eye.



Now, if you have a hard time seeing it, here’s captions. (Zoom for larger photo)

Kind of awesome, isn’t it?
