You’d never know it by looking at this chill little Canadian…

...but today, it's probably colder in Canada than it is on the planet Mars.

That's right! On Sunday, Earth's good friend Curiosity Rover was checking out Mount Sharp on the red planet and reported back a temperature of 21.2° fahrenheit.

Parts of the U.S. are also colder than Mars today. Hope you have some hot cocoa handy.

It will be colder than @MarsCuriosity’s location in Gale Crater throughout much the northern US and Canada today
