What role does "aus" play here?

I have the same question


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/phle

and me, it seems "from" is twice there - "von" and "aus"

Fourthed, I'd say the sentence is fine without aus.

Pons sez, that's how you say "view something from somewhere": von etw (dat) aus betrachten.

"It from here look out at" I suppose. It does seem like a lot of prepositions.

to view sth [from sth] -- etw [von etw dat aus] betrachten

(and we want the bits which are inside the brackets.)
