See a sunset on Uranus, other worlds (and also a moon) in this NASA simulator

If you saw the sunset UranusThe sky would start out as a brilliant blue and fade into deeper blues with striking turquoise notes. So how do we know that?

Gerónimo Villanueva, a planetary scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, visualized what the sunsets look like on Uranus (at the 1-minute-43-second mark in the video above), as well as on Earth, Mars, Venus, and Saturn’s largest moon Titan while building a computer modeling tool for a possible future mission to Uranus. This tool is being developed with the ultimate goal of perhaps someday taking it through Uranus’ atmosphere to study the atmosphere in person, according to a NASA statement.
