What Earth looks like from Mars

Curiosity, that little rover on Mars that just could not stop working, captured this cool image of Earth as seen from it's Martian location. I feel so small.

This view of the twilight sky and Martian horizon taken by NASA's Curiosity Mars rover includes Earth as the brightest point of light in the night sky. Earth is a little left of center in the image, and our moon is just below Earth. Two annotated versions of this image are also available in Figures 1 and 2.

When you can see Mars in the night sky from Earth it appears very small.

I would expect something similar looking at Earth from Mars.
