You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

A Curiosity Sunset on Mars

The first time we had one of these it was shot by Spirit in 2006 and then this one last year also by Curiosity.

    Nice scene! Is this real of the mars?

    It is real. Everything on this site is real unless marked as “artistic” but even then it is artistic interpretation based upon scientific observation. I only show true color and do not post false color science images here.
