extraterrestrial\ ˌekstrətəˈrestrēəl\ (adjective); of or from outside the earth or its atmosphere.

today we visited mars.

it is impossible to take a bad photograph of mars, but also impossible to take a really good one, one that captures what we process with our naked human eye. so exquisite and so painful is it’s beauty, that after a short while, hot-pink striations will begin to singe your retinas, and you’ll need to sit still for a bit, with a cold flannel over your face.

there is also a chance that your dune buggy, if it has never before navigated a landscape set alight, might go into system fail - in this case, you’ll need to get a tow, over the border.
