A member of AboveTopSecret.com has discovered what appears to be
significant image alteration in the images taken by the Mars Spirit craft and released by NASA. When he compared the reference shots of the on-board
sundial (used for color reference and calibration), to released panorama shots, he noticed a striking difference in color.
Have a look at these two close ups found by AArchAngel:
The reference shots on the left show what looks like a nice balance in the Red Green and Blue channels in the image. The shot on the right shows a
close-up of the same reference sundial, but cropped from a now popular panorama shot. The question is, what color is mars? We can see that the blue
channel has been significantly altered, so that in the panorama shot, blue is now a bright pink.
So... what color is Mars... really?
Many thanks to an alert and astute AArchAngel for finding this oddity.
Many thanks to some extensive resarch from our Staff-Member Kano who worked hard to solve the riddle of how the color shifts are happening, with some
excellent clues as to why.
