This Is What The Earth Looks Like From A Billion Miles Away

On July 19, NASA's Cassini spacecraft captured a rare image of Saturn's rings and our planet Earth and its moon.

Fountain "Originally released May 30, 2007, this image is centered on a small cone on the side of one of Mars' giant shield volcanoes. The cone shows some layers of hard rock but most of it is made of relatively soft material. This appears to be an example of a 'cinder' cone composed of pieces of lava thrown into the air during a small volcanic eruption." NASA
