“Sunrise,” a 2009 vignette by Steffen Koenig

The free science fiction story site 365 tomorrows has an enlightening piece of flash fiction titled "Sunrise" (2009), by Steffen Koenig. Originally published on the blog Barsoomian Dreams, it’s about a dying astronaut who sees the sunrise break over the outer rim of the Valles Marineris. Here is the opening line: “The ice from last night was melting on the rocky plateau that lay before him.”
