The Unparalleled Beauty of the Night Sky ... Up Close
Mars
17 days after opposition


Viewing at 100%
About halfway between Northern Hemisphere spring and summer, the north polar cap is still quite large - about 2800 km across, reaching down to 70 degrees north latitude. Hellas Basin in the south (near sunset) appears much dimmer than usual, so it's not full of mist, and an inner ring can be seen. Blue clouds can be seen on the terminator to the left.
