At 13:27:07 LMST (local mean solar time) the Instrument Context Camera (ICC) took this terrible picture of the Martian panorama.
Although the protection against dust has been removed, the image still appears heavily polluted by dust that has managed to overcome the protection and to make its way through the optics of the camera itself!
We will see in the coming days if the InSight team will find some solution to the problem, although I personally think it is unlikely that there is a way to “clean” the Instrument Context Camera (ICC) if not through digital processing procedures.
To show colors more similar to what the human eye would see, I subjected the image to white balance.
