Emirates Mars Mission uncovers new Martian aurora

The Emirates Mars Mission, the first interplanetary exploration undertaken by an Arab nation, has released stunning new images of Mars’ enigmatic discrete auroras.

This follows a new series of revolutionary observations that promise new answers and new questions about the interactions between Mars’ atmosphere, the planet’s magnetic fields and the solar wind.

The observations include a never-before seen phenomenon, dubbed the ‘sinuous discrete aurora’ by the EMM team, a huge worm-like aurora that extends halfway around the planet.
