Mars does have an atmosphere...a thin one by all accounts, but it does have one.
Which is handy, as all our Mars probes that use large parachutes to slow their path through the atmosphere would just plough into the surface without
slowing down at all!
The Martian atmosphere is composed of CO2, N, Ar, O2, H2O.
ETA; Just had a look at the image close up...there are two light coloured point light sources in the sky, and the dark streak in the mottled, thin
If the streak and the light points appear in previous and subsequent images, i'd say dust and debris on the camera...if not...who knows.
