Sunset on MarsMikey 10 comments
While the world's attention is focused on the Phoenix lander's soil samples and we debate whether that really is ice under there or not, I would like to offer a time-out, and draw your attention to this stunning photo taken by NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit in 2005.
This is our Sun, setting as seen from Mars. I just love the light scattering in among the dust. How eerie would it be to witness such a scene?
