Camera sees Camera... on Mars.

A sublime moment when we actually see humanity's presence on the Red Planet: the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter sees the Mars Rover Opportunity along Victoria Crater.

Isn't it beautiful? If for nothing else, enjoy the view of the crater. But I hope the intangible, intellectual beauty of the mere presence shines through.

I wonder when it will take for the pictures to start resembling a small settlement, town, city, metropolis, world.
