The impressive images of some strange bright clouds in the sky of Mars

The rover Curiosity of NASA has captured some spectacular and strange clouds over the sky of Mars, to the northwest edge of the Gale crater. It is about accumulations similar to those noctilucent clouds of Earth, bright clouds that occur at the poles and occur in the upper layers of the atmosphere, occurring at the end of twilight (hence its name).

These clusters are probably found in the mesosphere Martian – in the same area that occurs in the atmosphere terrestrial-, near the edge of space. Frequently they have been photographed from spacecraft in orbit, but photos are more unusual from the ground. The researchers believe that the composition of these clouds is ice water, dry ice or a mixture of the two.

These clouds-recently observed during the mission's 2.410 sun, as the Martian days are counted-, unlike terrestrial ones, are not limited to polar latitudes. Justin Cowart, geologist and amateur astronomer, author of the mosaic image sent from the Red Planet, which he publishes in his Flickr account, as reported by Europa Press.

On the other hand, the scientist Sean Doran has made public in his YouTube account a video with the mosaic of moving images of the clouds on Mars, where you can see the phenomenon in all its glory.
