norilana posted this over at her FaceBook, and I hope she won't mind if I share it here.
This is sunset on Mars on May 19 2005, and I challenge you to look at it without going `ooh.'



'Nuff said.

Kinda reminds you of that beautiful yet intensely creepy sunrise in Alien, doesn't it?

Yes, I thought that. It's weird that the image should look so familiar, isn't it?
If you click up the pic to full size, you'll see that the sun's setting behind a range of hills. That's the rimwall of Gusev crater, about fifty miles from the rover.
I could look at this all day.

You should send it your Mum, show her what sunset on Mars was like on her birthday. It's here, and you can download a much bigger version than the one I managed to post.

Sadly my Mum would not be able to see it. She has macular degeneration and her sight is getting worse all the time. She really only has peripheral vision now.

I'm sorry, Dave, I didn't know that. Please forgive my comment.

There is nothing to forgive. It was a really nice suggestion. (You're forgiven anyway!)

It is gorgeous. All those science fiction films that have shown sunrise or sunset on an alien world? This is the real thing. All right, in cosmic terms it's like looking at the sunset from the house next door, but...Mars...

This pic is indeed sensawunda inducing.
