Considering how big Mars looks from Earth, I expected it to look bigger.


The distance between Mars and Earth varies a lot. I don't know what it is right now, but variation in the distance would explain variation in perceived size.

Absolutely, Rick S. I think I'll revisit that book again tonight when I get into bed and switch on my kindle. Ideally I should be getting out my scope more than I have on these clear winter nights...but i'm feeling too lazy for going out setting it all up. One day I'll get round to posting a few pics of my own taken rather amateurishly from my skywatcher 200p.

Nice post 5cats. I always enjoy your science/astronomy posts.

I wonder why they never looked before? It's been 10 years they've been roaming around.

I found this to be in the "Epic Cool!" category & thought I'd share

Holy heck, that is amazing. So now we know what the first humans on Mars will see when they look up in the sky at home. Great post.

Three words come to mind. "Pale blue dot."

That's just an alien with a laser pointer screwing with everybody.
