Gusev dust devil, Sol 543
Gusev dust devil, Sol 543 One dust devil scoots across the center of the view in this movie clip showing a few dust devils inside Mars' Gusev Crater. The clip consists of frames taken by the navigation camera the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit on sol 543 (13 July 2005). In this clip, contrast has been enhanced for anything in the images that changes from frame to frame, that is, for the dust moved by wind. The total time elapsed during the taking of these frames was 8 minutes, 21 seconds. NASA / JPL-Caltech / Texas A&M
