At 21:56:46 UTC Mastcam Right captured a beautiful plain between green and turquoise, adorned with a brown hill and blue sky.
The sky appears just a bit milky, perhaps haze on the horizon, but the coloration between the foreground and the hillside is truly spectacular. I fervently hope that the area will be imaged again in the next few days to see if this coloration is a stable feature of the ground or if it evolves as the days go by; I’d bet on the latter.
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 a reduction of noise 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.
