Dear Friends of the Italian Planetary Foundation, Dear Readers,

after a few months of (almost) pure Science, here it is, for you all, a new "Martian Fantasy": a very low and bright Sun shining over Mt Sharp, at Gale Crater - Mars. For your information, the frame that we used to create this Fantasy is an Original NASA - Mars Exploration Rover - Mars Laboratory "Curiosity", taken during the 270th Sol (or Martian Day) of the Rover's Mission.

Your comments about our work, as you know, are and shall always be appreciated.

Dr Paolo C. Fienga/Lunar Explorer Italia/Italian Planetary Foundation
