Hi,

The airbags worked and the rover bounced and rolled to a safe landing on Mars. Spirit has started to send back pictures of itself and the surface. They can be seen here: http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/press/spirit/20040104a.html

There may be color pictures sent later today.

I once spent a summer cataloging clouds that were visible in Viking (1 and 2) orbiter pictures of Mars.
