CLat: -12.20°

Description

Seeing remained decent. After this photo, clouds from the south took over the sky and ended the night of imaging.

Notes:

  • There's a faint cloud above the dust storm in much of the southern hemisphere east of the central meridian. At this point, it has become fainter than earlier in the night.
  • Mare Cimmerium is setting.
  • Most of the south polar cap is covered by dust. The cap also appears to have a hole.
  • Hellas Basin is under a bright cloud of dust.
