The four arrows in this Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image point to active dust devils captured around 2 p.m. local time on a flat plain west of the large basin, Schiaparelli. This image is located near 5.1S, 348.9W; and covers an area 3 km (1.9 mi) wide. The dust devil shadows point toward the northeast (upper right) because sunlight illuminates the scene from the southwest (lower left).
