Mars in the Rear View Mirror


MarCO-B, one of the experimental Mars Cube One (MarCO) CubeSats, took this image of Mars from about 7,600 km beyond the Red Planet on 26 November. MarCO-B was flying by Mars with its twin MarCO-A to serve as communications relays for the InSight spacecraft as it landed on Mars. This image was taken after InSight landed.
