Let's start this thread of our planet - the only Temperate terra wth life known to date. Personally I prefer photos where full Earth is seen, like these:

From "Deep Impact"



From "Galileo"



From Mars ("Spitit" or "Oppotrunity", I don't know)



Few more:







And this is my favourite - MESSENGER Earth flyby:

It may not be a full view but the Earth from the ISS is still an incredibly awesome sight.

Mars Global Surveyor. They also released pictures it took of Jupiter and the Galilean moons at the same time. The rovers' cameras can not take pictures like that, to them Earth is a dot smile

The second and third pictures from your "few more" are taken by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. I made a version a few years ago that simulates what the Moon really would have looked like in the picture (they artificially brightened it by a factor of 3 before release).


Famous image from Voyager:


Rosetta:
