What are some similarities between Earth and Mars?
Another similarity would be with the phases of the moons. Both planets have moons that rotate around themselves and revolve around their planet. As the moons from both planets orbit, the sun lights 1/2 of the moon and different shadows are cast. Part of the moon is lit and part of the moon is dark. These lit and shadowed portions created by the sun are seen from the planet as different shaped moons. This results in phases of the moon on both Earth and Mars as the moon orbits.
These are some similarities between Earth and Mars.
What are some differences between Earth and Mars?
The final difference would be with the eclipses. Although Earth and Mars both have lunar eclipses, they don't both have solar eclipses. During a solar eclipse the moon blocks the sun from a planet when all three objects are in the same plane. Solar eclipses do not occur on Mars because its moons are simply too small to block the sun from Mars even when in the same plane. Earth does have them because its moon is far than larger than the moons on Mars.
