What does the Sun look like when seen from other planets?

My guess is that from Mercury or Mars our Sun will look massive - but from Uranus or Neptune it'd be pretty small.

Are there any photos that show the Sun as seen from various planets?

Thanks Cosmosnaut! Your pic of 'Sunset over Mars' is one seriously good landscape shot. NASA take a bow. I'll use that as this week's desktop pic on my laptop. Cool.

I wonder if there are any 'artist's impressions' of the Sun seen from the other planets? Hint hint.
