NASA recently shared pictures of blue dunes on Mars.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recently shared a picture of Mars, showing the surface of the red plant, which looks like it is electric blue in color.

The image, shared by the space agency with the title Blue Dunne on the Red Planet, combines shots taken by the Thermal Emission Imaging System Instrument on a Mars Odyssey Orbiter between December 2002 and November 2004.

Two types of mounds appear in the image. One set is yellow and reflects warm climate, and the other set is blue or yellow which represents cold weather.

In this false-color image, regions with cooler temperatures are recorded in blur tints, while warmer features are represented in yellow and orange. Thus, the dark, sun-warm dunes glow with golden color. This area is 19 miles. (30 km) wide.

The set of images clicked on the red planet at 80.3 degrees north latitude, 172.1 degrees east longitude, was released to mark the 20th anniversary of the longest working Mars spacecraft Odyssey in history.

NASA shared images of the blue Martian dunes in 2018 and earlier this year, posting some breathtaking images of how blue planets look from space.
