A small piece of overseas object particles (FOD) was seen in footage from the Mars helicopter’s navigation digital camera (Navcam) for a portion of its 33rd flight. This FOD was not seen in Navcam footage from the earlier flight (32). The FOD is seen in Flight 33 Navcam imagery from the earliest frames to roughly midway by means of the video, when it fell from the leg and drifted again to the Mars floor. All telemetry from the flight and a post-flight search and switch are nominal and present no indication of car harm. The Ingenuity and Perseverance Mars 2020 groups are working to discern the supply of the particles.
