Description
Greetings! I share my capture of Planet Mars on 3/16/2014 from Caguas, Puerto Rico. The photo shows the region of Meridiani Planum and this is a fairly extensive plain. Here Opportuniy landed in 2004. To the north, you can see the pole with considerable snow. East / South-East you can see the large amount of clouds covering the whole area of the red planet.
