Heres something you dont see every day - a sunset on Mars taken by one of NASA's Rovers. I like the muted colours a lot and think it makes for a nice tranquil desktop image. resized and tidied up for the usual Caedes format.

Excellent find as always Phil. Can't wait till we get the first humans to set foot on the red planet. Hopefully in our lifetimes!

Awesome! You're right, that's something you don't see every day... and that makes it really special! 10/10 by me.

Totally Awesome. Never imagined something like this, how everyday things can be so different in the rest of the universe. Stupefied

Hopefully sometime in the near future we will be able to actually witness the spectacle of a Martian sunset on Mars. I love it, as it brings out visions of the future to me.

Absolutely beautiful, and to the people talking about humans on Mars, both the ESA and NASA are planning to send humans to Mars around 2030, there is some info on it at the Vision for Space Exploration and Project Constellation pages on Wikpedia. :-)

This has a creepy air to it. Alone, desolate, and foreign. Excellent capture.
