Hubble Closest MarsRegular price $140.00
This photograph is a color composite generated from observations taken with blue, green, and red filters. A total of 11 filters, spanning a wide wavelength range—-from blue to near infrared—-were used during the observations. The shorter wavelengths show clouds and other atmospheric changes. The longer wavelengths, including the near infrared, reveal Martian surface features.
This image was captured during the Mars Perihelic Opposition of 2003. The closest Mars has been to earth in nearly 60,000 years!
