Description

I decided to capture data in infrared before closing down for the night. Seeing continued to be good.

Notes:

  • Syrtis Major and Hellas Basin are rising.
  • Mare Cimmerium is the dark feature most prominently visible through the dust storm.
  • The South Polar Cap appears muted by the dust storm.
  • Most of the SPC also appears to be darkened.
