Dear observers,

it is valuable to use each clear hour to observe Mars. We can follow the chngings in the polar cap and see different regions of the planet.

Uwe,

An excellent observation of Mars. You have recorded several albedo features. I have labelled the major albedo features in your observation. The best of luck in your future observations.

Carlos
