NASA Rover Found Blue Sunset on Mars Planet

NASA Rover Found Blue Sunset on Mars Planet : Here we are sharing a amazing news with you about NASA’s Curiosity Rover Caught a Blue Sunset on Mars. Watching the sunset may seem like a very human activity, but a NASA rover on Mars caught a glimpse of a blue-tinted sunset from the Martian surface. Curiosity Rover got to work on Mars in August 2012, where it has been studying the planet’s terrain and environments, but this is the first time the robot has beamed back photos of a Martian sunset in color. Sunset on Mars looks drastically different than the warm colors seen on Earth. It may seem odd that a Mars sunset would wash the planet in blue, but dust in Mars’ atmosphere allows “blue light to penetrate the atmosphere more efficiently than longer-wavelength colors,” NASA said in a statement.

The photographs were sent home on April 15, from the rover’s position in the Gale Crater. The images returned to Earth from Curiosity’s MastCam are in black and white but contain coded information that, when decoded, reveals color. NASA released its own color image sequence on Friday. “When the blue light scatters off the dust, it stays closer to the direction of the Sun than light of other colours does. The rest of the sky is yellow to orange, as yellow and red light scatter all over the sky instead of being absorbed or staying close to the Sun,” said Lemmon.
