The Campbell Scientific met station (automated weather station) we installed last April at M.A.R.S includes an enclosed digital camera (CC640) that is programmed to acquire two images per day - one at 9 am and another at 1 pm local time.

This summer I downloaded the images that we had collected between April 17 and June 22. Afterwards, I assembled the images into a QuickTime video in order to see the change in weather patterns during the collection period.
