Mars last night


Recommended Posts

Very nice! I was watching it this morning with a 120mm Mak and Syrtis Major was just about to rotate out of view. There is noticeable brightening near the north pole, also present in your drawing, perhaps a dust storm or haze.

This is my first drawing of Mars and with my 110 Newtonian, it was very difficult to make out the dark areas. Because the image is so small, they were like moving all the time and had to do some guessing of what I was actually seeing. I found a pic from an imager on Cloudynights from around the same date and to my surprise its very similar to my drawing.


Thanks for pointing out the lighter area at the NP. Haven't even paid attention to that 😁
