Wanted: winds - now
Wanted: winds - now With her Navigation Camera (Navcam) at the ready, Opportunity captured this Martian dust devil as it twisted through the landscape below her vista point high on Knudsen Ridge on March 31, 2016. Some dust devils lose momentum quickly and disappear. Others are mini-storms that can ‘grow’ into a regional guster or even a rover-threatening planet-encircler. At the same time, these dynamic winds that move across the Martian terrain have the power to clear a dusty rover’s solar arrays. That’s what Opportunity and the MER team are hoping will happen soon.
