    Holy shit I might even get this one and it’s not on this planet. Oh the irony.

    That’s the skyline (well, horizon) of Mars and a satellite image of the Moon.

    Just saying “mars” and “moon” doesn’t really answer the question well enough for me… that’s like saying the previous skyline and images were simply from ‘”earth”.

    Skyline photo: Gusev Crater, Mars. This was taken from the Spirit Rover at its landing site.

    Sat image: This is just west of the Sea of Tranquility, Moon. This image is just west of Apollo 11’s landing site and just north of Apollo 16’s. This image includes the following craters:

    Delhambre, Theon Senior, and Theon Junior (distinct grouping of one large and two small craters in the south-central area of the image)

    Ritter and Sabine (equal-sized pair in the northeast region. Ritter B, C, and D are the three little ones stringing north from Ritter.)

    Agrippa and Godin are the large ones in the northwest corner.

    Other notable craters from this image are: Tempel, Whewell, Cayley, de Morgan, d’Arrest, Dionysius, Manners, Schmidt, Lade, Lade M, Lade B, Taylor A, and Taylor B.
