Sunrise and sunset photos from Mars

If you think sunrise and sunset are beautiful at the beach, check out the view from Mars!

NASA’s “InSight” lander caught images from the red planet on April 24th and 25th.

An interesting detail is the size of the sun — it appears smaller than you’re probably used to.

That’s because Mars is much farther from the sun than Earth is, making the sun appear only about two-thirds the size it appears to be when viewed from Earth.
