Which planet has blue sunsets?


It may be known as the Red Planet, but sunsets on Mars are actually blue. This enchanting phenomenon finds its origin in the interplay of light and atmosphere, much like our own planet. Rich in iron oxides, the fine dust that covers the surface of Mars and fills its skies, not only gives it its red hue but it possesses a remarkable affinity for allowing the passage of blue light. The result is an exquisite spectacle of scattered light, creating a stark blue glow. Earth, however, has much more atmosphere for the Sun to pass through, filtering out the blue light as the sun drops below the horizon.

The correct answer is Mars.
