Dust devils spotted swirling around Phoenix…

Look at this picture, taken during Sol 104… and by “look” I mean click on it to see it full size…

See that blurry… something… at the top left? That’s not a smear on the lens, or an imaging artefact -that’s a dust devil! A mini whirlwind whorling and swirling across the landscape just a short distance away from Phoenix! We knew before Phoenix landed that there was a pretty good chance that the lander might see dust devils but this picture – and others taken on Sol 104 – confirms it. Hope we get a look at some from closer..!
