You are WRONG, as usual.

It is easy to see the TRUE COLOR of Mars without relying on NASA. Just buy an amateur telescope. You will INSTANTLY see that it is a rusty red color for the simple reason that the surface is covered with iron (+3) oxide. [If you don't know what the (+3) means, consult a Chemistry book.] I have seen Mars with my own eyes. So can you.

Here an amateur photo [left] is compared with a photo from the Hubble space telescope [right]. NASA colors are obviously EXACTLY what the amateur saw.

You will notice that Mars was called the Red Planet LONG before NASA launched its first rocket.

There are few water [really ice crystal] clouds on Mars, mainly in low lying areas. There are sometimes dust clouds, but they are the same color of rusty red as the rest of the planet. Of course, the polar caps are blindingly white.

Mars on March 23rd 2014, imaged by Christopher Go with a 14-inch scope. South is up. The big white patch at top is not the South Polar Cap or Cloud Hood but the Hellas basin, which often fills with clouds or frost. The big dark peninsula at dead center is Syrtis Major; always look for Hellas due south of it.

Everything that I say above can be verified with your own eyes if you purchase a decent amateur telescope with clock or computer drive and camera mount. [Never buy a telescope without clock or computer drive or without camera mount.]

Atmosphere is too thin to permit pure liquid water to exist. There MAY be some small ponds or underground lakes of salt-saturated liquid water. You can verify the thinness of the atmosphere by simply waiting until Mars occults a fairly bright star. You will see the star blink out abruptly because of the thin atmosphere. A thicker atmosphere would cause the star to fade out and flatten into an oval as it approached the disk of the planet.

Here are some decent moderately priced telescopes. Make sure that they have clock or computer drive & camera mount.

  • "True color" of Mars ~ PH🚀🤓EY, Tue Dec 5 10:28am
    I bet y'all think MARS is red. Hahahahaha. No, MARS is NOT red. And not dead, too. NASA has made deliberate effort to confuse the public. True color, false color, the agency uses language straight... more

        • Know he does not know that. ~ PH🐀🐀EY, Tue Dec 5 2:40pm
          You are out of synch. Do you know anything about this issue? No. Why? Because you have a narrow mind. I seriously doubt if you have even considered Mars as a living planet. Nor cared one way or the... more
      • Clearly, you are incorrect and ~ PH🚀🤓😂EY, Tue Dec 5 12:34pm
        choose fraudulent images. I have seen many MARS images from amateur 10" scopes. They are bright and beautiful, not the doo doo colors you seem to like. Regarding the southern pole at the top, that is ... more
      • Oh man, have you ever been duped... ~ TheFrustratedPragmatist, Tue Dec 5 11:54am
        The alt-NASA, the one that is doing all the other programs that us dolts are unaware of, has co-opted the entire telescope industry for many decades. They have made sure that every telescope built in ... more
        • Duped? No, you have been fooled. ~ PH🚀👹EY, Tue Dec 5 12:43pm
          I spend time researching and find great big holes in the reality NASA produces for your consumption. And you fall for the phony blurred non high resolution images. You take their word for what is... more
        • You got it! ~ shadow, Tue Dec 5 12:04pm
          Finally! :)
        • LOL! So long! ;o) (nm) ~ TW, Tue Dec 5 12:02pm
          • "So long" what? ~ PH🌔🌔EY, Tue Dec 5 4:44pm
            I have proven the assertion. See my post up board top. The vids are short. Do some RESEARCH and join the real world.
    • Correction on first video link: ~ PH🤓🚀EY, Tue Dec 5 11:08am Actually this the the NASA agency director's video showing his monitors. I reversed the two links. Oops!
