I caught Mars in twilight. It was really amazing steady and transparent skies... Mmm, spring...
And yes, this time Mars was bigger for me :D

Really nice sketch and you catch the "glow" I also see when viewing - also the "salmon pink" colour for these higher altitude views. Great detail spotted too!

Congratulations with this "bigger" Mars. Excellent work.
What did you use as medium? Is this a digital sketch?

S1mas,

An excellent observation of Mars. You have recorded a god amount of detail over Mars. I have labeled the major albedo features visible. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
