Description

Stepping outside and feeling the cold air, I immediately saw a meteor heading south between Mars and Antares. I had decent seeing and excellent transparency while imaging the red planet.

Notes:
Orographic clouds are covering Olympus Mons and Pavonis Mons.
The South Polar Cap is emerging from winter. It will shrink significantly as Mars approaches opposition.
