When you look at Mars (the "Red Planet") what color do you see? Is the color that you perceive different with the naked eye than with your telescope? Is it different with different telescopes or under different magnifications? Is it different when a global dust storm is in progress? Is it different if you have a bright (or dim) light (of what color?) nearby? Is it different when observed under twilight or daylight conditions? What have been your personal impressions concerning the color of Mars based upon your own observations?
This is a request for a collection of personal, first-hand impressions / observations only -- not a request for information from Internet resources, not from research papers, not from spacecraft, not from imaging technologies, not from spectrographic studies, etc. -- just first-hand, personal observations please.
This is not a test. There are no wrong answers. This thread, if all goes according to plan, will simply end up as a collection of personal impressions / observations concerning the perceived color of Mars.
Oh, one more thing: Please do include your own impressions regardless of how often someone else has provided the same color impression, and regardless of if no one else has provided the same color impression.
Thank You, and have at it!
