Martian clouds in motion from Phoenix (sol 94)

Martian clouds in motion from Phoenix (sol 94)
Martian clouds in motion from Phoenix (sol 94) Phoenix took the 10 frames that compose this animation between 14:52 and 15:02 local solar time on sol 94. The camera was gazing slightly to the west of south, so the clouds are moving westward or west-northwestward. Ice clouds had become more common in Phoenix' sky as the summer sun caused water to sublime from the northern polar cap; the summer's maximum abundance of atmospheric water vapor was recently reached at the Phoenix site.
