A spacecraft orbiting Mars has turned its eye homeward to photograph Earth as it has never been seen before, capturing a surprisingly detailed image of our blue world suspended in the vast black of space.

Unlike any previous image of Earth from another planet, clouds and continental features are visible.

Cool looking shots! Can you imagine the level of detail that piece of equipment gives us on the surface of MARS? LOL! Probably examining those pyramids up there.

"Later this year, Mars will be closer to Earth than ever in recorded history, offering skywatchers and photographers on this planet a unique opportunity to examine Mars."

Somebody should try to view & photograph the monuments of mars when this happens. See if Hoagland is legit.

Well, you'd need some pretty serious gear to take some pictures of Mars from Earth. Even if you pointed Hubble towards the planet you wouldn't be able to pick out much surface detail... That's why they send the probes out in the first place.
