Dust Devils of Mars: See Wild NASA Views of Red Planet Whirlwinds – CNET

As its name suggests, the European Space Agency’s ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter is investigating gases on Mars, but it also has a camera that captures spectacular scenery down on the red planet. ESA described this 2019 image release as a “dust devil frenzy.” 

The image has been processed to highlight the dust devil tracks in dark blue against the lighter surface. It likely took hundreds or thousands of dust devils to make this wild pattern. 

ESA and Russian space agency Roscosmos partnered on the ExoMars mission.
