Original Caption Released with Image:

This movie clip shows movement of dust by a gust of wind inside Mars' Gusev Crater. It consists of frames taken by the navigation camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit during the afternoon of the rover's 495th martian day, or sol (May 25, 2005). Contrast has been enhanced for anything in the images that changes from frame to frame, that is, for the dust moved by wind.
