This video shows the difference in orientation of Mars between the 2016 and 2018 observations, and it also illustrates the obscuration by the 2018 dust storm. The opening image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope on May 12, 2016, shows a clear atmosphere. Three-dimensional models created from Viking mission photographs illustrate how the northern hemisphere was tilted away from Earth in 2018. The final image, taken by Hubble on July 18, 2018, shows a global dust storm, with spring in the southern hemisphere.
