Frosty Scenery

NASA Mars Phoenix Camera Sees Morning Frost at the Landing Site

"Water frost appears in an image the SSI took on Aug. 14, 2008, at 6 a.m. local Mars time on Sol 79, the 79th Martian day after landing. The frost begins to disappear shortly after 6 a.m. as the sun rises on the landing site."

Editor's note: Have a look at the last image sent back by Webcam #2 at the Haughton Mars Project Research Station on Devon Island. This place is often called "Mars on Earth". As is the case with Mars, it too has a frosty coating (albeit from a recent snowfall). If you look at the time lapse video (below) of imagery taken from the same webcam you will see this frost building up toward the end of the day.
