I don't know about nay previous discussions, but the photo looks very altered to me.
The first striking aspect is that the color scheme of the sky is very off. There is virtually no atmospheric pollution at the poles that could cause
the hazy, smog-like atmosphere above the horizon.
This strongly suggests to me that the color balance of the image has been altered.
If you look closely at the small bands of clouds, they seem to have too much red and yellow in them.
My bet is the photo has been pushed into this color scheme digitally.
