I came across a photo today taken by the Mars Spirit rover. Its in real color. NASA normally puts 99% of Mars photos into black and white or false color. False color if often noted in their description of the photo, but more often not. False color makes the planet look red, like dark soil from a garden bag.
Here we have a normal view of Mars. The colors of the rocks very between white and blue. The sky blue and cloudless, although I have reported clouds in the sky of Mars in the past, so they do exist. The sky, looks a lot like todays sky on Earth. I just wanted to let you in on a little secret that NASA doesn't want you to know about, or to see.
