Dweller, good to see you're still keeping up with Mars. I'll give it a look next time.

Dweller,

Nice work--nothing like good seeing.

Looks like you saw some evening clouds on the p. limb? Did the NPC appear that big to you?

No - I got the scale wrong - I'm not the greatest of drawers and find I am a little inconsistent and exaggerate features. Practice makes perfect though

Dweller,

An excellent observation of Mars showing Syrtis Major and a bright haze over the following (morning) limb. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos
