Mars’ clouds are surprisingly Earth-like

Despite having radically different atmospheres, Mars and Earth seem to have similar cloud patterns, hinting that the features may form in much the same way. 

The observations, obtained by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Mars Express spacecraft and NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, were unexpected. Perhaps most surprising to scientists was that the clouds observed over the dry and arid atmosphere of Mars resembled those found in very different environments on Earth.
