Night Clouds on Mars

An angry looking sky is captured in a movie clip consisting of 10 frames taken by the Surface Stereo Imager on NASA’s Phoenix Mars Lander. The images were take around 3 a.m. local solar time at the Phoenix site during Sol 95 (Aug. 30), the 95th Martian day since landing. The swirling clouds may be moving generally in a westward direction over the lander.
