Mars 22nd November

Recommended Posts

Two images of Mars from the 22nd November showing the Solis Planum and Vales Marineris region.  There is dust all over this region making it quite milky in appearance and is especially obvious along the preceding limb on the first image.   Only the region around the pole seems to be clear of dust at this time.  The Tharsis region is not overly obvious at the moment either so maybe shrouded in dust as well.  Olympus Mons can just be made out on the first image appearing from the night side of the planet.  The dust seems to clear further round the globe as seen in the second image which is less affected.


There seems to be a lot more activity around the globe so could be an interesting few weeks as the planet recedes from us.
