Blue sunset on Mars

Using a clip from NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, which NASAtelevision has online, here’s a short seasonal treat from JPLnews.  Accelerating about 17 minutes of sunset on Nov. 4 and 5, 2010, into a 30 second simulation it’s the longest sunset movie from Mars ever produced.  There’s also a clip of Phobos partially eclipsing the Sun, if you follow the links…  Nasa press release here.
