At 05:29:50 UTC the Mastcam Right again imaged the drilling called “Glasgow”.
The comparison with the previous image of eight days ago is beyond reasonable doubt something of great interest (see https://www.facebook.com/PianetaMarte.MdM/posts/2924222010994306).
Entire areas of rock have changed color from reddish to green!!!
This is a clear variation of chrominance that is not attributable to differences (negligible) in the angle of incidence of sunlight, which at most can affect the brightness and / or color saturation but not the chrominance!!!
On that rock we are observing something extraordinary, something that should be discussed in all scientific sites, sites that instead are silent.
In years of scientific divulgation I should have got used to this “journalistic omertosity”, instead every time I live it as a stab at science, the real one, the one that should seek the truth without neglecting the slightest detail.
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.
