What color is the sky on Mars?

Recommended Posts

I realize that this is probably not the best forum to ask this question, but I thought some of you might know the answer.

Ya, it is really amazing how much the sky of mars looks like Earth's minus the clouds.

Um, you are not supposed to see this last one it is classified..... I mean photo-shopped, look at all the digital artifacts in that picture.

Look at the Warping of the photo around the UFO on the left side.

I don't think this is the real-colour image. A lot of images from Mars get automatically adjusted for white balance to resemble the same illumination as on the Earth. This makes it easier among other things for geologists to identify rocks from images since rocks can look very differently under different lighting.

Normally sky on Mars has yellow-orange tint and it usually only looks blue during sunset/sunrise IIRC.

I wouldn't doubt that.
