The NPC is very small now and very dim compared to last December when it's whiteness was very obvious.

Dweller,

An excellent observation of the "hard side" of Mars. The North Polar Cap (NPC) has become much smaller over the past few weeks as this indicates the approach of Martian Northern Summer. I have labeled the major albedo features noted. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos

Thanks Frank and Carlos.

This has been my best ever viewing of Mars and I have really enjoyed doing the drawings. Whilst I realise I am no artist I do enjoy being involved with he changing aspect that can be seen on another world.

Clear skies to all.
