During these six days surrounding opposition, you can see the subtle changes in cloud features. March 1st had particularly good seeing here in Saint Petersburg, revealing details of Syrtis Major and the receding polar cap. The last couple of images show a significant increase in clouds emerging in the Elysium region.
