Home Two images from the Mast Camera (Mastcam) on NASA’s Curiosity rover show a change in the color of light on the Martian surface since a dust storm engulfed Gale Crater. The left image shows the “Duluth” drill site on Sol 2058 (May 21); the right image is from Sol 2084 (June 17). The cherry red color is largely due to red dust grains in the atmosphere letting red light through, but not green or blue light.
