A new simulation of NASA shows you how you would see the sunsets if you were on Venus, Mars, Uranus and Titan.
Everyone loves a spectacular sunset. Earth has given us orange and red sunsets because of its atmosphere. But other celestial bodies, such as Mars or Uranus, experience very different sunsets with unexpected colors. Now, thanks to a NASA simulation, you can get a taste of the strange sunsets in extraterrestrial worlds.
Geronimo Villanueva, one of its planetary scientists NASA, took a break from his main work to make simulations of extraterrestrial sunsets. The simulations could help scientists land spacecraft - probes on Uranus, Venus or Titan, which is a satellite of Jupiter.
The simulations are grouped in a video and all show views of the sky, with an off-white circle representing the sun. On some planets, such as Uranus, the sky fades to a deep blue with hints of green or turquoise. In others, such as Mars, light is dimmed from brown to blue, as clouds of Mars scatter blue light better than other colors.
Her simulations NASA are simple, but give you a good idea of what life on distant planets would be like. The video is worth watching in the maximum resolution you can and of course in full screen.
