Sunsets on Mars, and on Earth

Curiosity lander shot its first sunset on Mars.
Compare this to a sunset on Earth:
One would have to make sure the zooming was the same, that the aspect ration was respected ... but it still gives a good appreciation about how the Sun would look like on Mars, compared to Earth.
In reality, Mars being on average 1.5 times further from the Sun than Earth, the Sun should appear 1.5 times smaller there.
