How does earth look from other planets!

So charming

It would be nice if we could travel to other planets of our solar system and enjoy the view of our earth from other planets. But we’re bound by few limitations like gravity, speed, fuel, vehicles etc. So easily we can’t step out of our Earth. Indeed, even now, after about six many years of human spaceflight, only a few people have soared into space and seen the sun looking out from behind that bent skyline.

Since 1961, an unimportant 556 individuals have had this tenuous experience. Less, only 24, have watched Earth shrivel out there, becoming littler and littler until the point when it was no bigger than the substance of a wristwatch. What’s more, just six have been totally alone behind the furthest side of the moon, cut off from a perspective of our planet as they cruised in an unendingly profound, ritzy ocean.

Earth from other planets

As per our knowledge, being the most intelligent living creature we’ve always broken the limits of our thinking and reached a new horizon. Here is the list of all images of our earth, taken by mankind and spacecraft from outside.

Earth from Mercury

NASA’s Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) spacecraft captured an image of the Earth and Moon while it was 114 million miles (183 million kilometers) from Earth.

Earth from Mars

The image of Earth from Mars was the first shot of our planet from another. The image was taken using the High-Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera, from 88 million miles (142 kilometers) from Earth.


Earth from Jupiter

A NASA probe headed to Jupiter has snapped a striking photo of Earth and the moon, showing our home planet as it appears from 6 million miles away. The Juno spacecraft took the new photo on Aug. 26 as part of a test of its camera imaging system called JunoCam.

Earth (on the left) and the moon (on the right) were seen by NASA’s Juno spacecraft on Aug. 26, 2011, when the spacecraft was about 6 million miles (9.66 million kilometers) away. The photo was taken by the spacecraft’s onboard camera, JunoCam.


Earth from Saturn

Cassini took the third shot of Earth from another planet was taken from Saturn on July 19, 2013, from 898 million miles (1.44 billion kilometers) away.

The tiny blue dot that is Earth is visible under Saturn’s main rings, the F, G, and E rings. This image was also the first time we knew in advance that Earth would be imaged from another planet.


Earth beyond Neptune

This image was the first ever portrait of the solar system. Voyager 1 took a total of 60 frames to create a mosaic of the solar system from a record distance of about 4 billion miles (6 billion kilometers) away on February 14, 1990.  Earth’s tiny blue dot, barely the size of a pixel, can be seen in the center of one of the light rays, which was caused by taking the image so close to the Sun.

Quick Fact: This image is also known as “The Pale Blue Dot”. Voyager 1 was on its way out of the solar system after completing its mission of studying the outer solar system when NASA, at the request of Carl Sagan, commanded it to turn its cameras around and take one last picture of Earth and the vast solar system.

Here we’re finishing the list of ‘Earth from other planets’. We will keep updating this list as we collect more images of our earth from other planets.
