Space and Perspective

Here are a couple of pretty cool pics I shamelessly ganked today.

The above is via dangerousminds, and shows an artists rendering of what Jupiter would look like if it were as close to earth as the moon is. Of course its gravitational pull might tweak the tide charts just a bit...

This one is from fasel, and it is an actual photo taken from Mars, showing Earth, Jupiter and Venus as seen from the red planet. Although one comment I saw online says that the color-correction is wrong, and that it shouldn't appear this red, but oh well. It's still just pretty goddamn awesome, and awe-inspiring.
