Imagine how confused an alien would be if it saw the rover just stare at a sand dune for 2 days and eventually going over it

Something I noticed about the sunset on Mars:
1. The sun appears smaller than what's seen here on Earth. Why? Coz Mars is farther from the sun than Earth.
2. Blue planet(Earth)=>Sunset is red.
Red planet(Mars)=>Sunset is blue.
