Could this be ice?
A late night download from Phoenix' sol 5 activities yielded this image, which was taken by the Robotic Arm Camera, looking right underneath the lander at the far leg. The far leg does look stable, but hmmm....what's that bright, smooth material between the camera and the leg? Could it be ice?
And Phoenix is sitting right on top of it. Hot diggity!
