A sunrise on Mars is a different experience from a sunrise on Earth. NASA's InSight lander, a stationary explorer that has been in residence on the red planet since late 2018, documented the gentle, beautiful moments when the sun comes up on Mars.

"I'll never tire of sunrise on Mars," the InSight team tweeted this week. "Each morning, that distant dot climbs higher in the sky, giving me energy for another round of listening to the rumbles beneath my feet." A GIF shows the glowing orb of the sun as it moved above the horizon on April 10.
