This Panoramic Camera mosaic was taken around 6:07 in the evening of

Sunset and twilight
images are occasionally acquired by the science team to determine how
high into the atmosphere the Martian dust extends, and to look for dust
or ice clouds. Other images have shown that the twilight glow remains
visible, but increasingly fainter, for up to two hours before sunrise
or after sunset. The long Martian twilight (compared to Earth’s) is

that are erupted from powerful volcanoes scatter light high in the
