The Transit of Earth from Mars, November 10, 2084

While from Earth you can see transits  of Mercury and Venus, from Mars you get transits of Earth as well. Like transits of Venus from Earth, transits of Earth from Mars usually occur in pairs, with one following the other after 79 year, followed by a hundred year gap. The last was in 1984, and the next will be November 10, 2084.

The cool thing about transits of Earth from Mars is you also get to see the Moon as well. The image to the left is the Stellarium simulation of the transit of Earth on 2084.

The next transit of Venus to be seen from Mars is in 2030.

Thank you! Maybe we'll be there to watch it or at least some more rovers will visit.
