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

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.

Carlos
