New Images Show Stunning Auroras on Mars

A probe launched by the United Arab Emirates to explore the Martian environment captured a very unusual phenomenon on camera: a nighttime aurora on Mars.

Artist's impression of what a human eye would witness the Auroras as captured by the Probe.

Before the Hope orbiter's main research mission even started, one of its scientific sensors captured the aurora, a notoriously transient phenomenon that has proven to be extremely difficult to analyze.
