    Default Sunrise and Sunset on Mars via InSight!



    The InSight spacecraft captured some photos of a Martian sunrise and sunset: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/ins...sunset-on-mars!

    - The camera on the robotic arm snapped the photos on April 24 and 25, the 145th Martian day of the mission

    - The shots were taken starting around 5:30 a.m. and then again starting around 6:30 p.m

    Pretty cool!
