    I wish this was a color photo. Mars looks like a little red dot from down here on Earth; I was kinda hoping that Earth would look blue or green.

    Also, I’m more than a little curious about what color the sky is on Mars (visible from the Martian ground, I mean). I’ve heard that the color of a planet's sky is based on how much light is being filtered though the atmosphere.
