Martian Winds Clean Off Some Of The Dust Gathered On InSight’s Solar Panels

According to a report by Digital Trends, winds on Mars may have blown away a thick layer of dust that had gathered on the InSight rover's solar panels.

Since it landed, the efficiency of InSight's solar panels had fallen by 30 percent, as previous Martian wind-storms had kicked up dust which coated the panels and reduced their ability to power the rover.

On February 1, 2019, InSight was reportedly in the path of a wind vortex, also known as a dust devil.
