Mercury and Earth From Mars

When we talked about seeing the Earth - Mars Opposition from Venus, you might have wondered what Earth would have looked like as seen from Mars on the night of the opposition, January 30th.

Well as Earth has to be directly between Mars and the Sun for there to be an opposition, you wouldn't have seen much at all (if you wanted to keep functioning eyes that is).

You would have had to wait until February to see the Earth, and on the 15th of February if you were on Mars you would have seen Earth and Mercury peeking up over the horizon.

Mars scape imaged as usual in Stellarium 10.2
