Sunset on Mars

I was just listening to and watching the enhanced pictures from a podcast called Riding with Rockets, a wonderful podcast featuring reports and images from non-manned space probes in deep space. The images are quite often breathtaking, but one in particular almost brought me to tears – sunset on Mars. I’ve looked up the image on the Internet and found it at the NASA image site. The picture was taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on May 19, 2005. Wow! It almost gives the impression of a sunset on the Mediterranean overlooking some Greek isle.
