Martian Canal With Red Weed

This photo was taken 07/04/2576 during the 500th anniversary of the first Martian Colony. Canals crisscross the Red Planet much as Percival Lowell envisioned in the early 1900's. A curious red weed, as mentioned in H.G Well's The War of the Worlds, chokes this canal. The sun shines through the dusty martian sky.
