Sparkling frost in the Martian morning

Frost has formed not just on the ground around the Mars Phoenix Lander, it has also formed on the telltale mirror it uses to measure how the wind is blowing. What's more, they also had the lander send a sequence of images so we can actually see how the mirror sparkles in the sun as water frost accumulates throughout the morning.
