NASA'S MAVEN reveals Mars like you've never seen it before

NASA's MAVEN mission shows us mars like we've never seen it before. Scientists have obtained images of the ultraviolet "nightglow" of Mars, a mysterious atmospheric phenomenon that could help future Mars colonists understand how the Red Planet's atmosphere functions. The images show how winds circulate at high altitudes and images taken in daylight shows the change in ozone layer over different seasons.
