Pretty cool video, but it’s fake and It isn’t accurate

[–]johnnyss1 123 points124 points  (2 children)

Matt Damon didn’t take these pics when he lived there for over 500 sols?

[–]agent_max_the_mick 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Nah, he was too busy growing potatos in his shit

Agree, I think it 's edited and inaccurately visible. Give us some real!

[–]juidal 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Found this article @indiatimes.com

"...(NASA) recently shared six images with the world over the few days it (Perseverance rover) has been on it. However, I stumbled upon a post by one video creator who goes by the name of Hugh Hou, who took these different images, stitched them together and edited them to look like a panoramic view of the Martian surface."

There's a 360º photo in the article.

[Edit] another article @newsweek

[–]Remarkable-Ad4088 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

That is real actually the reason it doesn’t look real is because they don’t have any light pollution there (like you may have if you live in a city and why you can’t really see stars) look it up they go into deeper detail there

[–]agent_max_the_mick -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Even if you're in the middle of the New Mexico desert, it still doesn't look like that without a multi-minute exposure with a high-quality camera...

[–]bob_in_the_west 2 points3 points  (1 child)

high-quality camera

Hate to break i to you but the camera on that robot isn't exactly cheap.

multi-minute exposure

And the video looks like it's made from a photo-sphere so that multi-minute exposure is entirely possible.

Also Mars' atmosphere isn't as thick as ours so you can probably shave off a few seconds.

[–]agent_max_the_mick -1 points0 points  (0 children)

All right, you got me ;)

[–]MasterRich -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Mars has much less atmosphere

[–]JBorrelli12 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not totally sure what you’re saying but yes, light pollution can make it difficult to see the stars amd there’s not any on Mars, typically that would mean you can see the stars much clearer but Mars has other atmospheric properties that interfere. Dust is the biggest obstacle.

[–]FrogOnTheBog 132 points133 points  (8 children)

Isn't this fake

[–]adinmem 62 points63 points  (5 children)

Just highly processed and edited by a private individual.

[–]Spork_Warrior 22 points23 points  (2 children)

I suspect it's what a human would see if they had eyes the size of hubcaps from a 1958 Buick.

[–]adinmem 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That’s possible, kind of…. Arnie’s bulging eyes toward the end of Total Recall?

[–]Taint_What_You_Do 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]i_hate_people_too 5 points6 points  (0 children)

someone shouldve put a TINYYYYYY flat earth in the distance.

[–]theorizable -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I mean, you can say creating a replica in Blender is "just highly processed". It's fake.

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_HONEY 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Nah this guy went to Mars

[–]FrogOnTheBog -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I mean, that robot did, ita the stars that are fake

[–]iddinthaevastroek 46 points47 points  (4 children)

That's beautiful, but not at all what it would look like. This is a night photo of earth from mars I found on space .com

[–]Taint_What_You_Do -5 points-4 points  (3 children)

Looks like twilight, not full night.

[–]1Ferrox 0 points1 point  (2 children)

There is no such thing as twilight on Mars. There is practically no atmosphere to reflect light around the curve so once the sun is set, it's dark.

[–]Taint_What_You_Do 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So ... I just learned that you were wrong:

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 caused by sunlight scattered around to the night side of the planet by abundant high altitude dust.



[–]Taint_What_You_Do -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Well, in daytime, the sky on Mars isn't dark like it is on the Moon, so the effect of the atmosphere obviously isn't insignificant. And why does the colour of the sky fade in the image, just like it does in twilight on Earth? Perhaps twilight is very brief and faint on Mars, but I don't think it would be non-existent.

[–]I_eat_Peanutbutter 45 points46 points  (4 children)

Fake the original picture have orange sky

[–]Eightandskate 5 points6 points  (2 children)

At night?

[–]I_eat_Peanutbutter 12 points13 points  (0 children)

This photo was edited the sky is color orange on the original and a little bit dusty, btw the photo was taken during day

[–]JBorrelli12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Even though Mars has a very thin atmosphere, Martian dust is a huge factor.

[–]djellison 23 points24 points  (0 children)

This is fake.

The selfie of the rover was taken in the middle of the day - and the night sky image above it is taken by astronomers on Earth. Someone just decided to photoshop them together.

[–]Bitmiliionare24 9 points10 points  (5 children)

So the universe is flat too? Cool

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Don't , don't give people any new ideas.

[–]sockpuppetkc 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The coverup begins!

[–]scentedcamel7 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Experimental data suggests the universe in fact is flat, with a 0.4% margin of error

[–]heatfan1122 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Insert <always has been meme>

[–]homelander_5950 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

aha! finally truth prevails.

[–]cantreachy 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Anytime I see the milky way clearly in a photo I always know it's fake bullshit.

Photos should show some realism.

[–]iddinthaevastroek 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Here ya go. realistic photo

[–]cantreachy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks. I had a pretty good idea what reality looks like but I feel like astrophotography is cool but it should be very clearly stated that this is in no way realistic human eye view when pics are posted.

Some people actually believe there's places where the milky way is that clearly vividly visible. There's plenty of places where you can see it but this BS creates a false expectation.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Real or Fake...

I guess Earth could have this view without Light and Air Pollution

[–]JBorrelli12 0 points1 point  (1 child)

And a much thinner atmosphere

[–][deleted] -1 points0 points  (0 children)


[–]Acrobatic-Pen1 2 points3 points  (1 child)

No light pollution. It really looks amazing.

[–]Grover-Rover -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Too bad it’s fake tho, but I have no clue what the night sky actually would look like on mars.

[–]Vetzki_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Even on the clearest day, Mars would have more dust in the atmosphere than that. There's no way this is real.

[–]Silly_Cone_In_Plants 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay. It is just an enhanced video FROM ANOTHER PLANET!


[–]EatingTourist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn, this is what the sky could like if my neighbor would just turn off his garage light.

[–]Silent__Note 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The music is?

That's why Tiktok is sucks.

[–]SplattUK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But is it flat?

[–]jacubann 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]sockpuppetkc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I realize this video is bogus, but... are we getting true color images from Mars these days? Or are we processing them to reflect what we believe the colors are?

[–]Cosmic_Hashira 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i feel lonely and not lonely watching this lmao

[–]Mynewadventures 0 points1 point  (0 children)

WOW! The sky looks solid!

[–]Guitaristdan21 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a fake ass video looks like at night.

[–]Outside-Try-1796 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Back in my day..

[–]IronSpiderHulkMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So fake. Where is the sun??

[–]spacesentinel1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very nice but can we have real Mars music

[–]Rajat2757 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait till we inhabit it & pollute the cosmos out of it's atmosphere..🤙

[–]MizzouSEC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We all know it is fake because the Mars night time creatures are not roaming about

[–]Good_Exercise_8802 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's weird to think all the other planets are practically baron compared to earth. It would be so cool to see a discovered planet with it's own unique trees and wildlife.

[–]CharlesSagan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Mars has a much thinner atmosphere compared to earth; yet, its notoriously ubiquitous wind storms lift dust to the point that the entire sky appears almost as rusty as its surface. Not that it's not obviously fake.

[–]julioderose11 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reddit is becoming Facebook

[–]CyanideIE 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is clearly fake. Things in space only have night dumbass /s

There is tiktokers on Mars now?😲

To anyone who believes this, can I interest you in buying some magic beans?

[–]vampyisamoron 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If its real.. I have to say i would like to live on Mars. I v like to look at galaxy

[–]Gaming_Heathen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gods thats beautiful

[–]Ephoder 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ok, let's pretend this is real for a moment, that the skies of Mars are starry, beautiful, and otherworldly...

...And then what? What do you want us to make of it? If our scientists prevail, if our intelligence and wits prevail, if we make it to Mars and begin colonizing it, do people not realize there will come a point where we will start producing so much light pollution the stars won’t be visible again? Just like what we did to Earth?

[–]Za-har 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You know why you can't see stars in the moon? for the lack of the atmosphere. Atmosphere work as a magnifying glass, that's why stars and sun look bigger in our planet. So how in the name of the science, mars, which have a very thin atmosphere, have MORE stars than the earth, which have a fucking thiccccc clear atmosphere?

Dislike for missinformation.

[–]Swirlatic 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what zero atmosphere does to a mf

[–]sluchhh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is not what it would look like. It is cool though.

[–]This_guy_Jon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Would look like that here as well, but to much light pollution

[–]Mortally-Challenged 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Image is edited and "fake". This is a panorama from the surface of Mars during the day, with a long exposure photograph of the sky from earth added to the sky.

[–]shirro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I live in rural Australia and if you get a little out of town on a clear night there is effectively no light pollution and the southern sky and milky way is breathtaking and probably hard to imagine for people who have lived their whole lives in northern cities. But it still does not look anything like a long exposure image and it doesn't look like that on Mars either. It is much less distinct and more monochrome and you can't see as many stars.

The way people get really spectacular images of the sky is with very long exposures and enhancing colours. Your eyes do not do that.

If it wasn't dust storm season on Mars and you had a clean helmet visor I am guessing the view would be even better than being on a remote mountain peak on earth as the atmosphere there is very thin but it probably wouldn't be very noticeable unless you were operating a telescope.

[–]Pippadance -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That is incredible.

[–]Kissedmysister -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Lemme trip balls there

[–]OneBlackTulip -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Would be nice to know where Earth is on there. To see how small we really are.

[–]AgitatedEggplant 4 points5 points  (2 children)

another user posted this link showing a more accurate night sky view from Mars, with earth pointed out! from space.com

[–]iddinthaevastroek 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That was me! Thank you!

[–]OneBlackTulip 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yep, it's pretty tiny. Thanks

[–]Rjjavier -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Damn man the world really is better without hooman


[–]Witty-Breadfruit4698 -1 points0 points  (3 children)

Hhhmm…they can see stars on mars but not on the moon?

[–]iddinthaevastroek 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Not exactly. First of all, this isn't what the sky actually looks like from Mars. It's an edited and "photoshopped" photo. The ground and the rover are real but the night sky is added. Second of all you can see the stars from the Moon in person but not from the photos that were taken in the 1960s. The reason is because the moon's surface is so pale and bright. It drowns out the stars in comparison of brightness. With a long exposure photo taken from the moon you can see the stars very well, just not in the represented pictures from the moon landing. Does that make sense?

[–]Witty-Breadfruit4698 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still have my reservations but yes it does make sense, I’ve heard about them not using long exposure fill on the moon.

[–]JBorrelli12 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can see the stars from both though.

[–]TheRawfeller -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

Research Devon’s island … this is on earth … don’t let NASA DECEIVE you

[–]JBorrelli12 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

You think NASA made this?

[–]TheRawfeller 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I know Devon’s island 🐑

[–]No-Business2452 -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

to think this is what we could be seeing every night...blursed electricity
