Mars UTC

CM1: 284.90°

CLat: -12.70°

Description

Seeing was very good. Just like Saturn, this was our first night imaging Mars with the C14 EdgeHD

Notes:

  • The NPH is peeking over the limb.
  • Sinus Meridiani is rising, with part of it being completely obscured by airborne dust.
  • Syrtis Major is at the CM.
  • An especially thick cloud of dust is obscuring Hellas Basin and the surrounding area.
  • The SPC is partly obscured by airborne dust.
