Dust Storms on Mars (October 15th 1996)
Though the storm has dissipated by October, a distinctive dust-colored comma-shaped feature can be seen curving across the ice cap.
The shape is similar to cold fronts on Earth, which are associated with low pressure systems. Nothing quite like this feature has been seen previously either in ground-based or spacecraft observation.
