Mark, yes, I had to use JPL sim and Mars Previewer to understand what I was seeing. That's how small Mars is.

Thank you. I am not going to put this sketch up against one of yours, though. So, rest easy.

Dean, yea, it's coming. Man, last night...I observed again but fell victim to looking way too hard at it in Ant III seeing. There was some faint dark shading about mid northern latitudes. Maybe some illusion. I thought it might be a very weak Mare Acidalium. Wrong! I blew the observation. Mare Cimmerium was still in the south, Utopia near the limb, but not really seen.
