A cloudy Mars!

Please find attached a Mars drawing from last night. Alas seeing was not great, although some steady moments did occur. In the south Erythaeum can be made out, while Acidalium can be seen in the north, The north polar cap is now quite small but still visible. The thing that really took my attention was what looked like a bright cloud on the evening terminator- presumably over Moab/Eden. Similarly, there also appeared to be a bright cloud in Arcadia near the morning limb.

I just can't bring myself to go out into the frigid temps in the early morning anymore. I'm in Mars hibernation until the temps start creeping over 30ºF.

Very nice Mars sketching.
I'm in agreement with Jason on the weather.

An excellent observation of Mars showing many interesting albedo features. The clouds recorded over the eastern (evening) terminator, Moab/Eden, Chryse/Xanthe, and Arcadia are very interesting and prominent. Thank you for sharing them with us all.
