It was always blue, people thought of it as the red planet forgetting that when they look at a photo of the planet taken from Earth they could see that it is not completely red, it has some bluish areas.

The "red" planet is now red and blue and all shades in between.
Caves have been found on Mars - and they could be home to alien life, scientists said yesterday.
The entrances to seven possible caverns on the slopes of a 16km-high Martian volcano called Arsia Mons were spotted by Nasa satellites.
The find will fuel suggestions that life may exist in 'underground habitats' on the Red Planet.
The caves could one day become shelters for astronauts, scientists at the US space agency said.
The holes named Dena, Chloe, Wendy, Annie, Abbey, Nicki and Jeanne were described as 'very dark, nearly circular features' ranging from about 100m to 250m across.
They may be at least 100m deep and the only natural structures capable of protecting life from meteor strikes, radiation and solar flares that bombard the planet's surface.
