We are all familiar with the glorious sunsets on Earth, but as NASA series of simulations show, the sunsets in other worlds are quite different.
If you are going to visit Uranus at sunset, you will see a brilliant blue hue because the sun is immersed under the horizon and eventually merges into a turquoise green. In a news released this week, NASA said: “Blue-green is the result of the interaction between sunlight and the Earth̵7;s atmosphere.”
These simulations are from planetary scientist Geronimo Villanueva, who is modeling Uranus’ atmosphere, just in case NASA decides to send a probe to study this mysterious ice giant planet carefully. Villanueva tested computer modeling techniques by generating sunsets.
Villanueva’s work is presented in two videos, one is like a camera lens, with an all-weather perspective, and the other shows you when you are on the ground and engulfed by the sunset.
These videos allow us to experience regular Earth sunsets, hazy Earth sunsets and Venus, Mars, Uranus and, The charming moon of Saturn. NASA is studying This involves an ambitious plan to make the rotorcraft fly on the moon.
Looking at Mars sunset from another angle. This is true of sunsets in other worlds: they are both strange and familiar.
