Mars rover sends back picture of ‘speck’ that NASA says is Earth
NASA tweeted a photo Thursday taken by Curiosity from the Mars surface six days earlier. The image shows a speck above the horizon that a pointer identifies as Earth.

Earth? or something else......

The image was taken at twilight. Kinda like how we can see Venus in the early evening on Earth before any of the stars. That is how Earth appears on Mars ie Earth is Mars Evening Star.

They didn't. It might be a first for Curiosity, but it's not a first for Mars rovers in general. That distinction is 10 years old now.

I meant specifically for Curiosity. I guess I'm just a little disappointed with the pictures I've seen so far.
