The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) shared a mesmerizing sunset picture from the Red planet Mars which was taken by the Perseverance rover.

In detail, NASA said “Our Perseverance Mars rover has taken its first picture of a sunset! This image was captured on November 9, 2021, by the rover’s Mastcam-Z camera system on the 257th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. While this is the first sunset imaged by Perseverance, Our robotic explorers have been looking up at the Sun from the surface of the Red Planet since the 1970s. Vikings 1 and 2; the Pathfinder and Phoenix landers; Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity rovers have sent back sunrise and sunset scenes.”

Perseverance, nicknamed Percy is a car-sized Mars rover designed to explore the crater Jezero on Mars as part of NASA’s Mars 2020 mission.
