What color is the sky on Mars?

Interesting Fact about Mars

The sky here on Earth is blue because of an effect called Rayleigh scattering. On the contrary, the atmosphere of Mars contains iron oxides that absorb the blue color, giving Mars a butterscotch sky and there will be a bluish glow as well in the areas surrounding the rising and setting sun. Again, pictures taken from the rovers may sometimes be false or accurate because the methods of color balancing are very subjective and different people see different colours in not exactly the same way. To answer the question: “What color is the sky on Mars?” a gallery of real Mars images can be found at Mars Curiosity Image Gallery.
