Hello, I'm trying to find color pictures of the martian terrain with sky that show the natural colors for each Mars season. For southern hemisphere late winter I found a suitable picture that includes the date and time the picture was taken, along with the "natural" colors. See link bellow: http://an.rsl.wustl.edu/msl/mslbrowser/pia.aspx?pia=PIA16800 Unfortunately, I have not been able to find anything provided by Curiosity for the seasons (sol = time in martian "days" Curiosity has been on planet) : Spring (â‰ˆ sol 40 to 184); Summer (â‰ˆ sol 185 to 322); and Autumn (â‰ˆ sol > 322). I need the date and time a picture was taken in order to determine the sun angle, wind speed, dust loading of atmosphere, wind direction, temperature and atmospheric pressure (â‰ˆ 2 meter above surface) for the approximate same instant in time (to the nearest hour) the picture was taken. A time point is important. From this information I can use the following applications to determine the other data: Mars24 Sunclock: http://www.giss.nasa.gov/tools/mars24/ JMARS Wind and THEMIS Stamps: http://jmars.mars.asu.edu/ Mars Climate Database: http://www-mars.lmd.jussieu.fr/mcd_python/ Any suggestions anyone has for finding the images (and attached time data) will be awesome! Please feel free to comment on anything else too. Cordially, Leslie Charles
