At 13:34:49 UTC Mastcam Left has captured the inner rim of the Gale crater, discretely visible even with a partially hazy sky.
The sky appears milky but the edge of the crater stands out and also shows areas of different color.
As soon as I have a full Martian year at my disposal, I will show you how the color of the ground also varies with the season.
To see what it would look like in good visibility conditions I recommend comparing it to the image taken on December 11, 2019 (see https://www.facebook.com/PianetaMarte.MdM/posts/2591188424297668).
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.
