I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday

Evening on Mars.

The Curiosity rover took this picture last month. That fan effect is called crepuscular rays; they're seen when the sun's rays shine through clouds near sunrise or sunset. They're very familiar to those of us on Earth, but this is the first time they have been seen so clearly on Mars.
