Divine Celestial

Far in the future, humans have looked otherworldly and have established themselves on neighboring planets. One of these planets was the crimson planet of Mars. Filled with colossal craters and vermillion deserts, this planet was thought to inhabitable, but this planet proved to be the new center of the galaxy.
