[OBSCURA] Martian Sunset

This is so hauntingly beautiful.

Martian sunset

Carrying on with the sunrise/sunset theme, here is a gorgeous sunset on Mars over the Gale crater, captured by Curiosity’s mastcam on sol 956 (April 15th, 2015) of its mission on the surface of our neighbouring world. Curious about why sunsets are blue on Mars? I wrote a little something about that a while back.

I’d love to see a blue sunset on Mars someday. It’s probably not going to happen but hey, I can dream, right?
