Watch Wispy Clouds Float By Overhead On Mars

Watch Wispy Clouds Float By Overhead On Mars

The missions on Mars, especially the recent ones, to make us feel like the Red Planet is a real place that has done a great job of moving us, so that some of us can go one day. We have incredible photos and 360° panoramas glory, but it often the little thing that makes it so familiar yet alien.

 The latest is that these great GIF images of fun clouds passing overhead on Mars taken out of curiosity by NASA and sewn together by Associate Professor of Astronomy Paul of the State of North Carolina.

The eight images were taking the right navigation camera of the working rover at 5 minutes on March 19. In addition to the overflowing clouds, we see in the foreground a stratified eyelid, called the Curiosity Science Team “Mont Marco.”

The pancake-like structure is about 7 meters (23 feet) long and is part of a mountainous region located at the foot of Mount Sharp, a geological feature that Curiosity has been exploring for the past few years. 

The various sediment layers formed at Mont Marco are narrow and contain cement deposits that later erode over time. This is an incredible record in the history of the Red Planet. 

The clouds in the images are made of water ice and are probably much thinner than what we see on our planet. This does not mean that Mars cannot create big clouds. This does not mean that Mars cannot create big clouds.

One of the longest volcanoes on the Red Planet, Arsia Mons, forms clouds 1,800 kilometers (1,120 miles) long and 150 kilometers (93 miles) long each morning on the planet’s southern spring. 

The formation process has only recently understood.  One of the longest volcanoes on the Red Planet, Arsia Mons, forms clouds 1,800 kilometers (1,120 miles) long and 150 kilometers (93 miles) long each morning on the planet’s southern spring. The formation process has only recently understood.
