The true colors of the planets of the solar system

(ORDO NEWS) — The true colors of the planets of the solar system.

Mercury

The color is gray-brown. The planet has practically no atmosphere, so we see the rocky surface as it is.

Mercury

Mercury is usually depicted as pure gray, which is a gross error.

Venus

The pale yellow color provides a thick layer of sulfuric acid clouds due to which the true color of the surface itself is not visible.

Venus

Two Soviet probes transmitted images from the surface and it is dark brown.

Earth

The ocean and light scattered by the atmosphere make the planet predominantly blue with white “inserts” in the form of clouds.

Earth

The land has hues of yellow, brown and green, which makes the Earth very diverse.

Mars

Mostly reddish brown, but there are darker areas as well as white ice caps.

Mars

The planet’s red hue is provided by iron oxide dust, which soars in the atmosphere and settles on the surface.

Jupiter

Orange brown with white stripes. The orange color of the clouds is given by ammonium hydrosulfide, and the white color is provided by the admixture of ammonia.

Saturn

The red clouds of the planet are covered with a white ammonia haze and this gives the planet a specific light yellow color.

Saturn

At the North Pole, due to the temperature drop, the clouds turn pale blue.

Uranus

Pale blue from methane clouds. In some images, Uranus is given a greenish tint to make it easier to distinguish from Neptune.

Uranus 1

Neptune

Also pale blue due to methane. However, Neptune appears to be darker than Uranus due to its distance from the Sun.

Neptune

In fact, the colors of Uranus and Neptune are almost identical.
