At 12:21:06 UTC the Mastcam Right captured this beautiful stratified ridge, with two nice little hills in the distance and a very clear blue sky.
In the ridge in the foreground, the lowest part of the photo, you can see several dark “flows” that look a lot like the famous RSLs (acronym for Recurring Slope Lineae, see but smaller.
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 in order to make the colors more similar to what the human eye would see.
