At 10:56:59 UTC Mastcam Left captured this beautiful Martian hillock, against the background of a clear blue sky.
It’s 08:50:10 LTST (local solar time) and it really seems that in the early morning the sky tends to be quite clear, at least in this period.
Also notice the turquoise hues on the rocks in the foreground, extending all the way to the hillside.
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.
