Description
Again having good observing conditions was possible to obtain good images of Mars, watching amazing planet surface details during a two-hour rotation. Olympus Mons is observed under clear skies but clouds around, which cover the Tharsis Montes and are also abundant in the east and west limb. A concentration of clouds in the equatorial zone it shows. Sinking into the sunset is the Valles Marineris and the Alba region north. In the region of the NPC Lemuria distinctly observed.
