At 21:25:23 UTC the Mastcam Left took again a nice formation of white clouds standing out in a clear blue Martian sky, this time also with a lot of gravity waves (see https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Onda_di_gravit%C3%A0).
Also for this Sol, this is not the only photo that depicts a cloud formation (see https://mars.nasa.gov/msl/multimedia/raw-images/?order=sol+desc%2Cinstrument_sort+asc%2Csample_type_sort+asc%2C+date_taken+desc&per_page=50&page=0&mission=msl&begin_sol=3074&end_sol=3074&af=MAST_LEFT%7CMAST_RIGHT%2C%2C), a phenomenon that seems to occur frequently these days.
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.
