chorus: Clouds on Mars, photographed by Mars Express, 20th December 2005.
Around 70°S 192°E on the southern Terra Sirenum; this composite is about 50 by 75km. Charlier Crater is partially seen at top. The clouds might be dust picked from the dark region below, but I’m not sure.
Composite of 8 images: 3 (red, green, and blue light) for colour, and 5 monochromatic (ish) in sequence for motion. The colours are probably more suggestive than naturalistic.

Earth imaged by the Electro-L weather satellite, October 4th-November 4th, 2013.

Earth filmed by the Galileo spacecraft during a flyby in December 1992.  From this perspective Antarctica appears on the top of the planet.

Earth seen by the GOES-14 weather satellite, May 22nd 2013.
To see the earth as it truly is, small and blue and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves a riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the eternal cold—brothers who know now they are truly brothers.
