Sunset on Mars: The normally red Martian sky turns blue as the sun goes down.

Imagine Yourself on Mars

What would it be like on Mars? There would be a few obvious differences from Earth: the sky is reddish-orange, it's darned cold, the atmospheric pressure is less, and there isn't much oxygen to breathe. In addition, time passes differently on Mars than on Earth, and the force of gravity is different as well.
