MARS VIEWED FROM EARTH


Image Credits: NASA/JPL Solar System Simulator developed by: David Seal

Upper Image FOV / Magn:  2' (arc-min) / 900x                        Lower Image FOV / Magn:  varies so planet fills image

Simulator Image Notes:  1) Fields of View are measured horizontally.  2) Eclipse shadows of planetary moons are not displayed. 3) Light-Travel Time is not included in calculated times. 4) Planets are viewed with their local north "upward", i.e. in the 12:00 midnight direction.  5) Simulator expresses the phase (where applicable) as the absolute value of the phase angle.
