The rover Spirit snaped this picture of the sun setting. The filter according to the write up appoximates what a human would see naturaly with a bit of red exageration on the crater wall.







The rock outcrop "Jibsheet" is in the foreground, and the Sun appears about two-thirds of the size it would be on Earth. The crater wall is 50 mi. distant, across the Gusev floor. Controllers acquired the image on May 19 as part of a study of the planet's atmosphere, using sunset and twilight lighting to gauge how high dust extends and to seek clouds of dust and ice.

It's a beautiful shot, that reminds me of the Scenery here in Nevada.
As a matter of fact, it's my wallpaper on a couple of my PC's!

We're not going back to the Moon till 2020 so it'll be years after that before tourists get to Mars!

You guessed it, Saturn from Titan, probably the greatest and most famous piece of space art ever made -- by the master himself:

Google "Chesley Bonestell".
