Quite simple. Just like the headline says, this is what a sunset looks like on Mars.

I wonder how close this is to true color. Would we see a blueish tinge as well?

i guess the more light goes through the more red the planet it. hahaha

There was a thread posted just recently showing this picture here: The photo is also a few years old already, but it's a good one none the less.

The blue is caused by high altitude dust scattering the sun light.

But will that exact tinge of blue show up to the Human eye? I know the colors the camera's on the rovers see are not the same as what we would see. There was a whole thread about it on ATS somewhere. That is, unless this photo hasn't already been color corrected that is then my question is moot.
