Calling it a divine cosmic phenomenon, he tweeted: “The high-quality images open up unprecedented potential for the global science community to investigate solar interactions with Mars.”

The unique pictures show an ethereal glow known as the Discrete Aurora around the red planet.

This comes after the Hope Probe commenced its two-year science mission recently and has begun its science data gathering phase.

The probe is set to yield the first complete picture of Mars’ lower and upper atmospheres throughout the day, night and seasons of a full Martian year.
