Martian Dust Devil

Here's a first - a shot from Mars Rover Spirit of a dust devil down on the plains of Gusev. This shot came right around the time that Spirit had a miraculous cleansing - dust was blown off solar panels resulting in power levels not seen since a couple months after landing. Do you feel amazed? I thought so.

(You know we see the images from the Rovers at almost the same time that NASA's top men see them. They probably missed this.)
