Great panorama of Mars

NASA have released a brilliant panorama of the Mars landscape. It looks very inviting to me! Let's go...

Re: Great panorama of Mars

Hi everybody! By fortune I used the Mars24 app just now, and the data shown were amazing: As seen from Mars the position (azimuth / elevation) of Earth and Sun are nearly identical from sunrise to zenith and sunset.

Is there a solar eclipse today seen from Mars with Earth taking the part of the moon??

Hope there will be someone to tell the camera to look at.

Re: Great panorama of Mars

Sorry, i missed the right word:

The solar eclipse seen from Mars will not happen in conjunction with Sun, but "someday" in opposition to the Sun, as we will see Mars then from Earth..
