NASA的洞察号火星探测器在2019年4月25日,也就是任务的第145个火星日,使用其机械臂末端的仪器部署摄像头(IDC)拍摄了这幅火星日落的照片。这张照片拍摄于火星当地时间下午6点半左右。

第一个发回这类图像的任务是海盗1号火星探测器,它在1976年8月21日捕捉到了日落;海盗2号于1978年6月14日拍摄到了日出。从那时起,“勇气号”、“机遇号”和“好奇号”等探测器都记录了日出和日落。

美国宇航局喷气推进实验室为该机构的科学任务理事会管理洞察。洞察号火星探测器是NASA发现计划的一部分,由位于阿拉巴马州亨茨维尔的马歇尔太空飞行中心管理。洛克希德·马丁太空公司在丹佛建造了洞察号飞船,包括它的巡航器和着陆器,并支持飞船执行任务。

InSight Lander Captures a Sunset on Mars

NASA's InSight lander used the Instrument Deployment Camera (IDC) on the end of its robotic arm to image this sunset on Mars on April 25, 2019, the 145th Martian day, or sol, of the mission. This was taken around 6:30 p.m. Mars local time.

This color-corrected version more accurately shows the image as the human eye would see it. See both the "raw" and color-corrected images.

The first mission to send back such images was the Viking 1 lander, which captured a sunset on Aug. 21, 1976; Viking 2 captured a sunrise on June 14, 1978. Since then, both sunrises and sunsets have been recorded by the Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity rovers, among other missions.

NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory manages InSight for the agency's Science Mission Directorate. InSight is part of NASA's Discovery Program, managed by the agency's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Lockheed Martin Space in Denver built the InSight spacecraft, including its cruise stage and lander, and supports spacecraft operations for the mission.
