On Mars, clouds are seen shining at night time (Mars Clouds). It has been called the Night Shining Cloud. Those seen at a very high altitude on Mars and it is possible that they are made of dry ice.
Clouds seen on mars
NASA Curiosity Rover Captures Shining Clouds on Mars: The layers of mysteries related to space and Mars are now slowly being opened. The Curiosity Rover of the American space agency NASA has taken a beautiful picture of the clouds seen on Mars. Scientists say that the picture that has come out about the clouds is more than expected. Now they will be studied. The climate of Mars is thin and dry, so it is considered rare to see clouds there. Clouds are usually found at the planet’s equator during the coldest time of the year.
Curiosity Rover, who was searching for life on Mars, had earlier sent a video of clouds. A picture has been released from the Mars Clouds Twitter account written, ‘Sometimes you need to stop on Mars and see the clouds. Cloudy days are quite rare here because the atmosphere is quite thin and dry (Mars Clouds Composition), but I put my cameras on it and want to share some pictures with you. ‘ Six different photographs have been molded into a frame. Does Mars Have Any Clouds?

Two GIFs have also been shared with Rover’s account. It has been told that the brightness of the clouds is called ‘Mother of Pearl’ cloud (Mars Clouds Rover). In a GIF, clouds are seen shining at night. It has been called the Night Shining Cloud. Those who have been seen at a very high altitude on Mars and it is possible that they are made of dry ice. Its crystal has got this light from the Sun (MARS Atmosphere Clouds). Due to which the clouds are shining even at night. Explain that the process of cloud formation on Mars and Earth is completely different.
I wandered lonely as a cloud on Mars…
These are noctilucent or “night shining” clouds. They’re high in the atmosphere and likely made of dry ice. Their crystals catch the fading light of the Sun, causing them to glow against the darkening sky. https://t.co/Gtgz9Iu822 (4/4) pic.twitter.com/LCcRibSGjx

How are clouds formed?
Particles of water have to cool down on particles to become clouds. These particles can be dust on the earth, which go upwards with the wind. But the atmosphere of Mars is thin, so it is difficult to form clouds there. However, they are made by a different process (Mars Clouds GIF). The clouds of Mars move up to an altitude of 37 miles. Scientists say that these clouds are made of cold carbon dioxite or dry ice. The photos have been taken from the rover’s black and white navigation camera and mask camera. Even at night, the clouds are shining because its ice crystals have pulled the sunlight inside.
