More stunning is the color of the Martian sky!! Pale BLUE!
Whatever happened to those millions of Martian images showing a foreboding orange sky? Or did they turn up the L2 red filter to hideous levels to show it as such?

What always strikes me when looking at images of Mars is how much sign there is of high, sustained winds. No longer the case on Mars but at one time the red planet was a very windy planet. What could make that change I wonder?
