Mars UTC

CM1: 156.50°

CLat: -2.30°

Description

Stepping outside and feeling the cold air, I immediately saw a meteor heading south between Mars and Antares. I had decent seeing and excellent transparency while imaging the red planet.

Notes:

  • Orographic clouds are covering Olympus Mons and Pavonis Mons.
  • The South Polar Cap is emerging from winter. It will shrink significantly as Mars approaches opposition.
