NASA discovers mysterious blue dune on Mars

The dust storm was first detected on Wednesday, May 30, but it soon swelled to be bigger than the North America continent. Since last week, the Opportunity rover, which is powered by solar, has been silenced by the dust storm, by hiding the Sun.

NASA's Opportunity rover, which has been on Mars for almost 15 years, is going into sleep mode.

Images from Mars continue to capture the attention of the public, especially as the planet is now experiencing a massive dust storm that is threatening NASA's Martian operations. It is assumed that the rover's batteries have a charge that's under 24 volts, which puts the spacecraft in low power fault mode. Regardless, the project doesn't expect to hear back from Opportunity until the skies begin to clear over the rover. The Curiosity Rover is still functioning on the opposite side of the planet but is facing deteriorating visibility.

Once the dust settles from the atmosphere, another potential threat is too much of the particles coating the rover and damaging some of its equipment. The colossal storm has now encircled the entire planet.

Photo taken by the camera Hiris, the most powerful of those that are installed on interplanetary stations. A phenomenon that has darkened the planet's surface to unprecedented levels, as reported by NASA. This natural phenomenon, considered by NASA scientists to be one of the "most intense phenomena observed" in recent decades, has forced the NASA's Mars Opportunity Rover to shut down all its systems.

NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), which hovers over 160 miles (255 kilometers) above the surface of Mars, recently sent back a photograph of a patch of blue on the Red Planet when it came across some dunes in the Lyot Crater. This makes the storm's development unpredictable, and it doesn't seem to be clearing out soon.
