Despite the 2:1 relative size difference between Earth and Mars, the Martian volcano, Olympus Mons, still dwarfs Earth's Mauna Loa, Hawaii volcano. When measured from the ocean floor, Mauna Loa is 10km. high compared to Olympus Mons at 23km. This animation is one element of the Earth-Mars comparison, showing Earth in its true color beauty. This animation is match-framed to animations #2864 through #2872.
