Hi,

I have not had much time to observe recently due to the long winter weather and long hours at work.

However recently I updated my Mars Nomenclature page for those that may find it helpful:

Eric,

Thank you for your excellent reference for any amateur interested in studying the planet Mars through a telescope. You give an excellent summary of what albedo features and atmospheric phenomena may be observed over Mars. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Regards,
Carlos

Thanks Eric
Your Nomenclature pages will be quite helpful :bow: as this coming Monday night when hundreds of us are at a large dark sky star party here south of Portland Oregon for the Total Lunar Eclipse high overhead at midnight, Mars will be even higher and just above the moon, so it will drawn a lot of attention. I haven't checked the JPL Planetary Simulator or other ephemeris yet for next Monday night but will look forward to referring to your pages on Mars.
