At 15:08:30 UTC Mastcam Left took this striking photo of the Martian landscape.
The horizon appears veiled by a kind of haze very similar to that observed here on Earth during particularly humid days.
If this haze was due to dust in suspension would appear ocher and not tending to blue as in this case.
I also find the variations in the color of the ground very interesting, almost like a rainbow as you go toward the horizon.
The original image is a black and white encoding of the Bayer mask that has been converted to color through a process called “debayering” or “demosaicing”. In addition, the photo has undergone noise reduction due to Jpeg compression, white balance, and a slight increase in microcontrast and color saturation.
