Hope Probe, launched by the United Arab Emirates, is the first-ever Mars mission from the Middle East. Launched in July 2020, it has been orbiting Mars since February this year. The main objective of this mission is to study the changes that occur in the Martian weather to understand the reasons behind why the Red Planet lost its early atmosphere and liquid water.
The probe recently captured the discrete auroras in the Mars’ night sky. Unlike the auroras that are found on the Earth, which occur only near the north and south poles, these auroras are found all around the Mars.
