If you think the rising of the sun on Earth is amazing, wait and see someone on Mars.
This amazing view is from NASA’s InSight Mars lander, which took images of the Martian sun on April 10th.
“I’m not tired of the sun rising on Mars,” NASA officials wrote in the “voice” of the lander. in a Twitter post on Wednesday (April 13). “Every morning, that long dot rises in the air, giving me the energy to listen again to the noises beneath my feet.”
As if the picture wasn’t enough, the InSight missionary team put together some photos of InSight’s sunrise during a brief period of time on the Red Planet and posted it on a Twitter post.

InSight (short for “Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport”) is a Mars spacecraft designed to study marsquakes and the interior of the Red Planet. The archipelago landed on Mars ’Elysium Planitia in November 2018 and is now a long time after completing its first full Martian year mission (about 687 Earth days) to teach measuring the Red Planet.
In January, a massive dust storm on Mars moved InSight to melt into a “safety mode” when its days failed to produce the power to carry out its scientific mission. The lander was returned in Feb. 15, NASA officials said at the time.
Meanwhile, InSight is expected to continue its science mission to Mars in the summer and end its mission for good in December, NASA officials said.
