Martian sunset at Gusev crater. Mars has long twilights because high in the atmosphere there is a lot of dust reflecting the glow of sunlight. Volcanic dust can do this on Earth too. The color in this image - taken by the rover Spirit - was adjusted to approximate what human eyes might see.

NASA is returning to Mars! LeVar Burton shares the story about MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution mission) and how it will explore Mars’ climate history and gather clues about the question scientists have been asking for decades. How did Mars lose its atmosphere and its water? Mona Evans, "Mars Facts for Kids" http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art36393.asp

Really new crater on Mars. (Image credit: NASA/JPL/University of Arizona) The HiRISE camera on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took this picture in 2011. In 2009 another orbiter took a picture of this area and there was no crater then. The blue color is there because the contrast has been greatly increased in order to see the features of the crater. ©Mona Evans, “Mars Facts for Kids” http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art36393.asp

Mount Sharp. Curiosity took this picture of her destination. It may just look like lots of rocks to you, but this is a scientific treasure trove. The different colors, sizes and shapes of rocks, etc. will tell a fascinating story to geologists. ©Mona Evans, “Mars Facts for Kids” http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art36393.asp

Shadow Portrait of NASA Rover Opportunity on Martian Slope (2014-03-20). The rover's silhouette was caught by its rear hazard avoidance camera. It's looking eastward shortly before sunset on the western rim of Endeavour Crater. The scene includes a glimpse into the distance across the 14-mile-wide (22-kilometer-wide) crater.
