I was browsing the only 2 raw images for the front HAZCAM on the spirit rover. I noticed multiple artifacts in the air on the first picture, then no artifacts on the second picture. Take a look.

SOL 1558 HAZCAM (Spirit) 1st picture

SOL 1558 HAZCAM (Spirit) 2nd Picture

Here is a picture with the objects I have pointed out. Also this picture contains what it looks like is some round things on the ground. (From the abrasive tool onboard the spirit?) ArMap, you have any idea?

SOL 1558 Highlighted areas


EDIT: There is another artifact below the middle highlighted artifact. I also wanted to include this from the Navigation cam on the same day

Hard to tell exactly from what I'm seeing but it looks like it could be a possible dust storm. I'm at work at the moment and can't look at it in more detail at the moment but it looks interesting. Thanks!

I don't think it is a dust storm or those have to be some pretty large particles of dust. The camera would not pick up individual particles like that when it is focused out like that, it will make the particles look transparent. At least thats what I understand from photography.

That look like dust particles.

The fact that they do not appear on the other photo is just because the camera is not the same, one is from the left camera, the other from the right.

And if I am right, other photos from that camera should show the same "artifacts".

The previous photo from that camera (from Sol 1551) has the same "artifacts", except one, the one on the top left of the image, so I think they are dust particles over the camera.

As for the other things, the ones on the ground, I agree, they look like the marks from the RAT, and the photo from Sol 1551 shows one more.

PS: thanks for asking my opinion.

Your insight is always invaluable!

I don't think I'm alone in saying that..
