Red, blue…. blue, red.

No, I’m not referring to having seen those lights in my rear view mirror recently.

I was intrigued by this article on about the Curiosity rover on Mars photographing a Martian sunset.  (They’ve been there how long and only now think to look at the sunset…??? <sigh>)

The sky on Mars goes blue towards sunset.  I think it curious that on the blue planet, the blue sky tends to go red towards sunset, and on the red planet the reverse is true. Check it out.

Maybe they’ll photograph a sunrise soon.
