A little science. A little magic. A little chicken soup.








Earth, Jupiter and Venus from the skyline of Mars!


my heart feels like it’s going to explode. oh my god, this is absolutely incredible. 

I don’t understand how people can look at these photos and be like “meh, whatever”.

It will always be insanely cool. I mean that is our planet. From ANOTHER FUCKING PLANET.

in complete awe

anyone else thinking of that planets aligning thing from hercules?

I have a strong feeling this is Photoshopped, as the origin site gives no citation for where the image comes from, and the lighting is kind of suspect. Also, the relative lighting of the three bodies is kind of suspicious too. The only way they could possibly be appearing in the same image, in an alignment like this, would be if Jupiter was on the other side of the Sun from Mars… and if it was, it seems way too bright in this image. Time to shoot this one past Phil Plait and find out if it’s real…

ETA: Phil confirms the image was produced by Earthbound planetarium software. Details here: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2012/08/10/an-unreal-mars-skyline/
