Of course you can see The Earth from The Moon if you can get there to have a look.
Dont forget that the moon is only 242,000 miles away from us, and The Earth is four times it,s size.
If you were to look at "The Full Earth" from the surface of The Moon it would look four times the size that the full moon does when seen from our planet.

When The Apollo astronauts visited The Moon in the sixties and seventies of the last century, some of the most brilliant pictures ,sent back, were of The Earth as seen from the surface of The Moon.
Truly inspiring.

The earth must look great from the moon, against the darkness of space. The Nasa photos are amazing and they left some of the Hasselblad cameras they used on the moon surface. I went to see an exhibition of photos taken by the astronauts that went to the moon and they were stunning.

It would be interesting to see an earth eclipse from the moon, with earth passing between the moon and the sun. I hope people go there again soon and leave some web cams.

You can see the earth from the moon as you can see the moon from the earth when its dark or not bright. The moon has no optical interfering atmosphere like the earth so seeing the earth, the sun, and others can be done without thinking it its still sunny or clouds on the way of your telescope.

Surely you can..there is no atmosphere on the moon so you can see the actual colour of the sky along with the beautiful view of the earth unlike from here,where the view gets hindered by the water vapours and other impurities in the atmosphere!

The interesting fact is that you cannot see earth from the far side of the moon i.e. the side facing away from earth. And that side of the moon is always facing away from earth. So yes, you can see earth but only from half of the moon surface.

It depends which side of the moon you're on. If you're on the side facing Earth (the side we see), yes, we're pretty obvious. If you're on the dark side of the moon, then no, the earth would not be visible.

Just like you can see the moon from earth you can also see earth from the moon. Just imagine the view, with the earth just sitting there in space.

Yes, you can see the earth from the moon just about the same way you can see the moon from the earth.
