The average distance between Earth and Moon is approximately 30 times Earth's diameter. Now you know

Looks like another phony picture. If the earth & moon look that big from mars, why doesn't mars appear to be similiar in size? Actually, earth & the moon would look like a couple of specks when viewed from mars (you didn't say you were using a telescope).

Is it directly between the Sun and Earth in full Solar Eclipse or is the Moon closer in its orbit to Mars than Earth?

Or farther?

Anyone here have that kind of knowledge?
The Earth is at the center of the Universe and what you're seeing is just the devil's work because the Earth is also flat and hell is below it while heaven is above. The Moon is just a lantern for the undead while the Sun is the purifying light that keeps the evil ones away. Please don't listen to all the sinners in here
