WOW! Nice pic! :D

As a kid i used to play in dust devils in Texas so it's very cool to see one on Mars!
Wow that is really something. A great pic......

+Nadja Kireta I think the shadow is cast from the direct left so you are only seeing the bottom half of it in it's shadow
You sure it's not someone in NASA who smudged the photo print by error? :-P
Now seriously, great catch. Pretty amazing to be able to see that.
the shadow looks weird +Nadja Kireta (as in "it does not look exactly like the smoke's shape" if that's what you mean) because of the angle the light hits the smoke...
Cool picture! I am impressed at the regularity in the martian ground patterns. And also amazed that with such a small surface pressure, these atmospheric effects still take place.
How far are we from having the first trailer park on Mars? Maybe these events would get more powerful if they had a target to destroy.... (just kidding!) ;-P
Always with the cover ups! I know its a long trip, but see what happens when you let your astronauts take alcohol with them, drunkie mar rover driving! :-)
In the bottom left of the image, you can just make out the tracks from Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton launching Dorothy IV to study the twister
NASA, stop lying. We all know this was totally photochopped.

Change your O2 canister immediately!
What's the reason for the white color? Water condensation?
