How different does sunset appear from Mars than from Earth? For comparison, two images of our common star were taken at sunset, one from Earth and one from Mars. These images were scaled to have same angular width and featured here side-by-side. The terrestrial sunset was taken in 2012 March from Marseille, France, while the Martian sunset was captured last month by NASA‘s robotic Curiosity rover from Gale crater on Mars.
