This microscopic image, taken at the outcrop region dubbed " Berry Bowl"near the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity's landing site, shows the sphere-like grains or " blueberries"that fill Berry Bowl. Of particular interest is the blueberry triplet, which indicates that these geologic features grew in pre-existing wet sediments. Other sphere-like grains that form in the air, such as impact spherules or ejected volcanic material called lapilli, are unlikely to fuse along a line and form triplets. This image was taken by the rover's microscopic imager on the 46th martian day, or sol, of its mission.
