These images uncover a remarkable coming of splendid halo on Mars during a solar storm.
The purple-white tone intrigue shows a power of ultraviolet light given off by halo on Mars’s night side before (left) and during (right) a event. A unnatural picture of Mars for a same time and course has been added, with a dayside crescent visible on a right. The auroral glimmer appears brightest during a edges of a world where a line of steer passes along a length of the glowing atmosphere layer. The Imaging UltraViolet Spectrograph on a MAVEN booster performed these images on 12-13 September 2017.
