The sun from planets other than Earth

We know the watery sun on Mars from images of rovers. From Apollo missions, the bright sun on the moon that is not blocked by an atmosphere, which only sets after two weeks. And of course our own sun, when it rises, when it sets or is covered by the moon in a total or partial solar eclipse. What would a sunrise on Venus look like, if you survive it? Or on Jupiter? Why is the sunrise on Mars a very different color from the one on Earth? This short film takes you on a grand tour of the solar system, each time with an unexpected glimpse of our ever-extraordinary closest star.
