This one is in the middle of a sequence that looks good in animation:

OMG! Those who have been waiting for an extended dust devil sequence, your dreams have now come true.

First, one in the extreme distance (practically on the horizon), starting at 2\n\455\2N166754107ESFA9C2P1560L0M1.JPG and lasting for 21 frames (it doesn't really become visible until the 5th frame or so)

Then, one extremely close, visible starting at 2\n\456\2N166841509ESFA9DWP1560L0M1.JPG and visible for 2 frames

Then, a lovely one starting at 2\n\459\2N167103718ESFA9F4P1560L0M1.JPG in the mid-distance, a 9-frame sequence

Then, *several* caught in a 10-frame pancam sequence starting at 2\p\461\2P167292304ESFA9GEP2888L2M1.JPG

I assume someone is making movies of these, for the MMB-deprived!

By taking the difference between devil pic and the previous pre-devil image, you can clearly see the extent of and structure in the devil that passed close by.

Attachment 2N166841509ESFA9DWP1560L0M1diffa below shows the inner structure well, while pic 2N166841509ESFA9DWP1560L0M1diffb shows the full extent of the devil. It also shows the devil's shadow just in front of the base, and you can also see that the devil obscures the sky right to the top of the frame.

edit: I can't seem to control where my attachments go, but all four attachments refered to in these two posts appear in one post or the other!

For the second shot of the close devil, devil pic 2 see attachments 2N166841529ESFA9DWP1560L0M1diffa and 2N166841529ESFA9DWP1560L0M1diffb in previous post.

The devil has gotten much wider (closer?) with plenty of internal structure.

Guys, thank you so much for the animations, I'm speechless ohmy.gif
Seeing Mars up close and personal with rover imagery is one thing, but those animations really take us there, to watch meteorological events evolve !

I never felt Mars so alive.
A very very BIG thank you to JPL and and all of you that make things happen.

Woah these movies are fantastic. Mars in motion. Amazing work in putting them together. The movies from MSL are going to be fantastic if this is what were getting from the MERs. Anyone wanna try their hand at a colourisation?

I hope my sources don't get in trouble, but these are too good to keep to myself! These are enhanced animations from Sol 456 and 459. Amazing quality.





Disclaimer: These come from JPL, but NOT OFFICIALLY. They have been modified by me to reduce file size. I don't want to see them on Spacedaily, attributed to this forum sad.gif. Seriously. Enjoy the sneak preview, and wait for JPL's PR people to catch up.
