At 11:24:16 UTC, 12:59:05 local solar time, Curiosity’s Mastcam Right takes this very interesting photo of some rocks adjacent to the rover itself.
The photo presented here has been subjected to white balance and a slight increase in micro-contrast and color saturation, to make more evident color variations.
Despite the great distance between Opportunity and Curiosity, even in this case we can observe patches of bluish-green color that partially or totally cover some of the rocks visible in this shot.
Is this a pure coincidence, or a seasonal phenomenon that affects (at least) the equatorial zones of Mars?
