Uploader comment: A thin layer of water frost is visible on the ground around NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander in this image taken by the Surface Stereo Imager at 6 am on Sol 79 (August 14, 2008), the 79th Martian day after landing. The frost began to disappear shortly after 6 am as the sun rose on the Phoenix landing site.
