Martian Skies

Martian Cloud

The atmosphere of Mars is hundreds of times thinner than Earth’s atmosphere, but it can support dust devils, wind storms, and clouds.

The current six live probes are sending back thousands of images of the surface, but there are only a few showing atmospheric phenomena. Boston.com has a collection of some of the best images, including some cool animations created by stringing together several still photos. Watching a Martian dust devil scoot in front of the camera is oddly satisfying.
