MSL Curiosity Clock keeps time for the rover's landing site and monitors the sun in the sky on Mars. A 3D Mars globe inside the clock is centered on the landing site. In due course of a Martian day (sol), the night shadow overcasts the landing site. Tap on the clock to remove the day & night simulation, and tap again to activate.
