Mars weather during the year

A camera called MARCI aboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captures a global view of Mars and its weather daily, which the team at Malin Space Science Systems maps onto a 3D globe of the planet. Here is one such image for each month of 2014, arranged chronologically from left to right and from top to bottom. Look for bright water ice clouds, which often cling to the volcano summits, and yellowish, billowing dust storms. NASA / JPL / Malin Space Science Systems / composite by Bill Dunford
