NASA showed how sunsets look on Venus, Mars, Uranus, TRAPPIST-1e and Titan

(ORDO NEWS) — Planetologist Jeronimo Villanueva from the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, created an amazing simulation of how sunsets will look on some planets and on the Saturnian satellite Titan.

The animation shows what you would see through an ultra-wide-angle fisheye lens aimed at the sky from the surface of a cosmic body.

For example, the sunset on Uranus will appear mostly blue, turning green-turquoise due to the high content of hydrogen, helium and methane, absorbing the red part of the spectrum of visible light. For the same reasons, the earth’s sky appears blue on a clear sunny day.

During Martian sunset, the color of the sky turns milky brown due to dust particles scattering the blue part of the visible spectrum.
