In this fascinating comparison photo we see a view of Earth from Mars (as seen by NASA’s Curiosity rover) and Mars from Earth as captured by Bill Dunford. Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second smallest planet in the Solar System after Mercury. It is approximately 225,300,000 km away from Earth. It is also one of the five ‘visible’ planets from Earth.
For those interested, you can see the first ever image taken of Earth from another planet here.
