The Curiosity rover on Mars captured imagery of the brightest object in its evening twilight sky, our own Earth and moon, on January 31, 2014. The rover has been at the Dingo Gap, inside the Gale Crater, on Mars this week. It captured these images on Sol 529, that is, the rover’s 529th day on Mars. Just think … everything we know is within that little dot, seen as a “star” from the planet just next door.
