"Management at eSnipe, which is me, is also feeling the pain of the 2002 bear market. So rather than pout about it, I bought some stuff on eBay that I really didnít need, but made me feel better."

Dust Devil Dance

I don't know how they do it, but the JPL Mars Rover team just keeps getting better at capturing images of dust devils from Spirit's perch high up on Husband Hill. I've created an animation from the original images (Spirit Sol 568 - August 8, 2005). This image is half-sized; Click here for the full-sized animated GIF (800K).

Update: The original photos were taken at roughly 30 second intervals. The animation uses the raw, unprocessed images without any contrast enhancement.
