Dunes in Crater North of Antoniadi Crater

Dunes in Crater North of Antoniadi Crater

A Lonely Dust Devil
While the main objective of this observation of dunes within a crater to the north of Antoniadi Crater is to track changes over time, HiRISE often catches nature in action. In this case, it’s a well-defined dust devil traversing the dunes, leaving exposed, darker subsurface material in its wake.
