Mars - October 31 8:19UT or 1:19am local time

 

6/10 and variable seeing with Jet Stream present. Soft images mostly. S. Polar cap bright and clear.

Sketch with labels showing the more distinct features. EDIT: yup, looks like interpreting and correlating these features to a map was way off laugh.gif

Very nice sketch! Resembles my view the last couple of nights. I believe your labeling is off a bit though. Solus lacus was near the limb but the feature in the center is mare simerum. It was too cold to sketch,(Alaska) so it's nice to see someone capture it. Nice work!

A good amount of detail there Luke. Hopefully the jet stream will move away for you.
