Sunset on Uranus similar to the earth.
NASA scientists created a simulation that helps to understand how the sunset looks like on other planets. As reported on the Agency’s website, Geronimo Villanueva, a scientist has created a simulation while working on a computer tool for a possible future mission to Uranus, reports zn.ua.
In order to check whether a tool works, a scientist has created a simulation of the colors of the sky Uranus and the other planets. In the presented video you can see how the sunset would look to an observer from a particular celestial body.
For example, on Uranus the sunset painted blue with hints of turquoise. It is the result of interaction of sunlight with the atmosphere of the planet. When sunlight reaches the Uranium, hydrogen, helium, and methane absorbs the red part of the spectrum. Blue and green part of the spectrum is scattered when the photons “bounce” off of gas molecules and other particles in the atmosphere. This effect makes the sky blue on Earth in a clear day.
In addition to Uranium, simulation NASA you can also see the sunsets on Venus, Mars and Titan – a moon of Saturn.
