Crashman1390 is correct about the colors, Curiosity uses Earth Rust palette.

What does that mean?

1) That's not Curiosity.
2) Go read about how the MER images are made into approximate true color images before stating that they're false color.

Also, Curiosity's sundial/calibration target, which is clearly the correct color.



And Spirit's (the one you mentioned above)

Why think of it as an argument? There's nothing wrong about being wrong -- everyone makes mistakes or believes things that are not actually true; even scientists. smile By reasoning things out with others, we can learn.

Well, no, if we're always wrong then we'd have no science, no rovers on Mars, and the successful transmission of this post is a complete accident. But I'm guessing you're just being facetious. tongue

I think that Solaris may have posted something like this in gif form a while ago, but here's an animation of Martian dust clouds moving. The animation covers about two minutes of real time.

Linear channels on Mars, believed to be carved out by chunks of CO2 ice sliding downhill during the spring-time thaw.

There had been some discussion earlier about Mars photograph colors, both in this thread and others. Here's a nifty little image which does some comparisons of Curiosity images, showing raw, natural-color calibrated, and white-balanced versions of the same image:

I wonder how it would look like for human eye? I think something closer to "white balanced", due to eye adaptation to monotone red palette.

Probably close to the center image. When you are outside for a long time, the sky does not get less blue. Your sense of color does not change too much. It will adjust by some amount, but not enough to make a large change in the appearance of the landscape.
