Illustration of the lunar landscape seen from its surface, with Earth in the sky. The Earth is in quarter phase. Seen from the Moon, the Earth appears roughly four times bigger than the Moon does in Earth s sky, and around 50 times brighter. This is showing the Earth from the lunar southern hemisphere, so it appears inverted.
