Rare Shining Clouds on Mars captured by NASA's Curiosity Rover

We see clouds almost everyday. At times we glance at the sky and imagine all possible shapes and look for patterns the vapors in the sky make. And at times we are too busy in our lives to notice and appreciate the beauty of the sky that we don’t even realize what beauty our planet Earth has given us.

To our surprise, in the Martin sky, NASA’s curiosity rover has captured mesmerizing images and videos of clouds!

Do you know why the formation of clouds in the Martian atmosphere is such a rare thing?

Yes, Mars has an atmosphere but it’s too thin and dry to enable the formation of clouds on daily basis.

Sometimes you just need to stop and watch the clouds roll by... on Mars. Cloudy days are rare here because the atmosphere is so thin and dry, but I've been keeping my cameras peeled and wanted to share some recent pictures with you

Tweeted the rover's official Twitter handle, thus starting an incredible thread.

The number of likes on the post explained how brilliant the images and videos were with many commenting as well.

And Curiosity Rover's handle took time to answer some of the questions and reply to some of the comments.

A user tweeted

Sometimes I forget there's a little robot rolling around alone on Mars

I'm alone here in Gale Crater, but I'm not lonely. I get to talk to all my friends and teammates back on Earth through the Deep Space Network..

Mars has long captivated the human imagination. Across millennia, the red planet has gone from being a mythical God of War to a probable place to find life.

And from what the Curiosity Rover has captured, the planet still has a lot to amaze us!.
