Movie Clip Shows Whirlwinds Carrying Dust on Mars
Another slightly stale news item, but I picked this up via Slashdot. Engineers working on the Mars Exploration Rover mission have “filmed” small dust devil’s streaking across the surface of Mars, using cameras on the rover Spirit. You can see various movies at the Astronomy Picture of the Day, and also here and here on the official MER website.
