Everyone is pretty used to the magnificent sunsets on Earth, but now NASA has revealed video clips simulating what sunsets would look like on other planets.
The simulation animation will give you an idea of what it would be like looking up the skies from Earth, Venus, Mars, Uranus, and Titan. The white dots represent the sun to show where the light is coming from.
The simulation tool was developed by NASA scientist Geronimo Villanueva and his team. They attempted to capture the full process of sunlight hitting the atmosphere of hydrogen, helium, and methane, which absorb the red part of the light. The space agency also unveiled a kaleidoscopic version of these sunsets and the results are stunning.
View the sunsets from other planets below.
