Mars clouds look eerily like Earth, despite having vastly different atmospheres

Despite having drastically different atmospheres, Mars and Earth appear to have similar cloud patterns, suggesting that the features may form in much the same way.

The observations, obtained by the European Space Agency (ESA) Mars-Express spaceships and NASA Mars reconnaissance orbiter, were unexpected. What has perhaps been most surprising to scientists is that the clouds observed above the dry and arid atmosphere of March resembled those found in very different environments on Earth.
