A Cloudy Day

March 22, 2012
Mars occasionally has cloudy weather. NASA and its HiRISE team had intended to take a picture of the bright ice-covered dunes that are faintly visible through these thin clouds, but weather forecasting on Mars is just as challenging as on Earth.

Where the clouds are thin, the remaining bright winter ice is visible, protected in shallow grooves on the ground, in addition to covering the dunes.
