Only today I realized that Mars is not completely round - it has his phase. Why I couldn't percept that before? :)

Simas,

An excellent observation of Mars. You have recorded several albedo features between Syrtis Major and Eden. I have labeled the major albedo features visible. Thank you for sharing it with us all.
