Are you a fan of watching sunsets? Well, NASA has an out-of-this-world one to show you.
On Monday, NASA uploaded to Vine a six-second simulated sunset from the surface of Mars. In a stark mirror from an earthly sunset, where blue skies fade into fiery red, the Martian sunset sees iron red skies shift to blue.
The vine condenses a 30-second movie that the agency originally uploaded to YouTube in 2012. The simulation was created using images captured by the Mars rover Opportunity’s panoramic camera in Nov. 2010, filled in with enhanced images and simulated frames.
