NASA’s New Image of Mars Shows Blue Crater

Perhaps Mars shouldn’t be called the “red planet” anymore.

NASA’s new image of the fourth planet from the sun shows signs of blue and purple.  

A scientist from the University of Arizona says the blue might come from water ice.

A scientist from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter tempered that and says the blue could just be an optical illusion.

The crater is about 16 meters wide and probably formed sometime between September of 2016 and February of this year.
