Description

Started the day with the scariest event I've ever experienced: waking up to an alarm. I had the phone set to full volume and laying next to my ear. My heart was still racing at the end of the imaging session, making it slightly difficult to precisely focus the telescope.

Notes:
Syrtis Major, which is setting, has a water-ice cloud over it.
Sinus Sabeaus is at the central meridian.
