The Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft, currently orbiting the red planet, had a chance to turn its cameras back on earth, also capturing Jupiter as the planets were aligned. It's a quite beautiful shot, much more detailed then the voyager pale blue dot, while at the same time conveying a sense of how small our planet is.

I especially like the first shot as it appears on the web page.
