At 10:27:11 UTC the Mastcam Right has taken again the excavation called “Mary Anning” (see https://www.facebook.com/PianetaMarte.MdM/posts/3139037619512743 and https://www.facebook.com/PianetaMarte.MdM/posts/3134289306654241).
From the comparison with the previous image, taken four days earlier, and despite the Sun is visibly lower, there are no particular color differences. On the other hand, you can see that some of the excavated material seems to have been blown by the wind towards the lower left corner of the image, with a direction rotated about 90° clockwise compared to four days ago.
I want to emphasize that both this and the previous images were taken with the same camera and underwent the exact same processing with the exact same parameters!
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.
