Bangalore: India’s Mars orbiter has sent a picture of regional dust storm activities over the northern hemisphere of the Red Planet, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) said here on Monday.
“Regional dust storm activities over northern hemisphere of Mars – captured by Mars Color Camera (MCC) on-board Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM)”, Bangalore-headquartered ISRO said on its official Facebook page with a picture.
It said the image was taken from an altitude of 74,500 kms from the surface of the Mars.
MOM spacecraft had sent its first images of the planet on Thursday, a day after creating history by becoming the only such endeavour so far to have met with success on the maiden attempt.
MOM aims to study the Martian surface and mineral composition and scan its atmosphere for methane, an indicator of life.
