The View from Mars

I don't remember it but I was alive Christmas of 1968. About three weeks old. Thus, I didn't get to see the images Apollo 8 sent back to Earth. It was the first time humans saw our home planet from somewhere else other than low-earth orbit. Here is one of the photos.

Now comes the view from Mars. And this time, the Moon's along for the ride. Is that not just awe-inspiring, humbling, and a little bit lonely all at the same time.
