Mars UTC

CM1: 3.40°

CLat: -19.80°

Description

I was expecting partly cloudy skies, but it cleared for a couple hours so I took out the C8 to get a quick shot of Mars.

Notes:

  • Syrtis Major and Hellas Basin is setting
  • Sinus Sabaeus and Meridiani are near the central meridian.
  • A band of orographic clouds has stretched around the planet in the southern hemisphere.
