Description

Mars is only 7.1" in width, or about 30% of its apparent width at the end of July. Sky conditions were much better tonight compared to last month.

Notes:
Sinus Meridiani is at the central meridian.
Syrtis Major and Hellas Basin are setting.
The bright orange cloud over Hellas looks like it may have escaped the basin on its western side.
The south polar cap is very small.
