Martian Dust Devel

I just think this is so cool, below is a picture of a Martian Dust Devel, moving across the Amazonis Planitia region of northern Mars. Quoting NASA:

An afternoon whirlwind on Mars lofts a twisting column of dust more than half a mile (800 meters) high in an image from the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
