Very Short Movie: The Clouds of Mars

Very Short Movie: The Clouds of Mars
Clouds scoot across the Martian sky in a movie clip consisting of 10 frames taken by the Surface Stereo Imager on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander. This clip accelerates the motion. The camera took these 10 frames over a 10-minute period. Particles of water-ice make up these clouds, like ice-crystal cirrus clouds on Earth.
