Quoting from Spaceflightnow:
Another notable HiRISE image released today shows a blue crescent Earth and
its moon, as seen by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. The west coast of
South America is visible in the photo. Still other images allow viewers to
explore a wide variety of Martian terrains, such as dramatic canyons and
rhythmic patterns of sand dunes.
The camera is one of six science instruments on the orbiter. The spacecraft
reached Mars in March 2006 and has returned more data than all other current
and past missions to Mars combined.
