Hello,

here is a set of RGB images I have collected on the evening of April 27th. Two relatively close captures in poor to occasionally very poor seeing, 11:51UT and 12:30UT. There could be some traces of polar cloud activity, if the seeing had been a bit better it would have certainly helped.

As usual, I used an 11 inch SCT (C11) and a QHY 5L II monochrome camera with Edmund dichroic RGB set.

Hi guys , plenty of blue sky in the first half of the month with plenty of solar activity = back log in processing!

 


 

 

The massive prom on the 18th shown at 14:39 ut was grabbed in cloud gaps.

 


 

 

On the 15th there was a big flare in 2036 shown here at 09:45 and 10:00 I exposed them on the dark side to indicate how bright the flare was.

 


 

 

The image timed at 14:36 UT shows the remnants of another massive flare in 2036 from about an hour earlier, when it was a total white out. AR 2035 came up too.

Hi Guys I just managed one and a half imaging runs on the 26th before the cloud won. I centred Mars in the eyepiece before plugging in the camera and was surprised to observe what turned out to be the Elysium Cloud . It was very obvious. I don't use eyepieces much ( except in my PST) as I see more on screen, this was a nice surprise.

Received, 25 April 2014 at 18:10 JST

 

Dear Reiichi,

Excellent work ! I believe the 2010 images do show the same cloud. In 2012, it has exactly the same aspect as observed in France on the week before its discovery by Wayne Jaeschke. It confirms the tendency of this area to produce frequently protrusions.

Brian Comb's images on April 12th look different to me. The bright feature is clearly inside the disk and is clearly bright in red light. This would be a dust cloud ?

Reiichi I wait for your MRO montages, we will use it for the future ISMO notes on spiral clouds. On Facebook some bresilian observers send me fantastic B images showing a clear movement of a polar front there. It looks like the activity began just when the area went out of my view so my own observations remained unclear, but at least the alerts I sent did motivate some people to observe closely the area !

Hi Don,

 

Well, I乫m later than ever, but here乫s my first Mars observing report of this apparition.  I had wanted to get started in February, but between lots of travel, company at home and bad weather when I was able to observe, that just didn乫t happen.  This is the first observation this month where I actually saw enough to draw.  After concluding my visual observation (details in the report), I made my first attempts to image Mars with my Celestron Neximage 5 solar system camera and my C11.  A couple of the files might be worth an attempt to process; I乫ve already deleted a couple of the others.  The seeing was a bit rough with the image on the laptop screen going in and out of focus.  Hopefully there may be at least a few frames worth stacking.  Depending on what I end up with, I may send an image to you for your comments.  Considering the fantastic quality of the Mars images I乫ve seen on the ALPO Mars yahoo group, I don乫t plan to post anything.

¤·····Subject: Limb protrusion

Received, 23 April 2014 at 22:31 JST

 

Dear Dr. Minami, Christophe, all,

 

  On the 17 April 2014 images introduced by Christophe (whose observations?), a cloudy protrusion is definitely recorded almost at the same location as shown on the first set of the image series on 7/8 April by Christphe. These protruding clouds reminded me of some high altitude cloud images over the area on the daytime limb captured by the space probes from the orbits above the polar area (maybe MEX VMC....I"ll review my collection of images).

 


 

  Another topic, but as we have passed the opposition in this apparition, the Martian dawn terminator is now on our side, we should also watch on the morning terminator for the particular phenomena :

  045~050S degrees line of latitude along Phaethontis~Electris~Eridania~Ausonia area for possible occurrence of the terminater protrusion like the ones observed in 2003 and 2012 (Christophe,  Brian Combs' images on 12 April 2014 in the SAF Gallery have already recorded a terminator protrusion over Phaethontis?).

 

  ESA's Mars Express VMC recorded an extremely bright spot  with adjoining surprisingly dark well-defined shadow at the classical Electris on 29 August 2008, the spot was estimated to be 180km across, might have been a 60km thick spheroidal, floating at an altitude of 80km, with the top reaching 110km height, and the bottom staying at 50km above the ground ! (PLS attached montage.)....the season was Ls=120degs, almost the same as now!  Though the season was different, the same type/same scale of phenomenon might have been captured on 20 February 2010 Ls =054degs by Simon KIDDS, Bruce KINGSLEY and Damian PEACH et. al (PLS also attached images), suggesting it would be well within our imagers' reach.

 


 


 

 We have just entered the season of the north polar spiral cloud (cyclone). According to the past observations of the white spiral cloud, it is most prominent when it first appeared on the morning terminator, then quickly dissipates as the local Martian time goes on. To follow the interesting hourly changes of the spiral clouds, "Aside of your own observing constraints,  "try to make at least two series if possible!"  as Christophe emphasized in his opening essay  " ISMO Best Recommendation To Observe Mars"  in the CMO/ISMO#420. It seems that a numbers of CMO observers have already recorded at least the precursory fragments of the spiral clouds in the expected area. I am going to check the next release of MRO MARCI Weekly Weather Report whether some afternoon remnants of the spiral clouds still retaining something of the way they looked as eyed spirals in the morning will be shown.

 

       Clear Skies with Good Seeing to all!

Dear Mars observers,

In order to save 乬postage乭 I am sending all my Mars images taken so far this apparition in one go.

They were taken with various filter combinations, as detailed, but all with a Celestron 14 (modified with Es Reid spherochromaticism corrector), 3x Televue Barlow, Pierro Astro dispersion corrector, and Flea 3 camera.

Dear Dr. Minami,
  I have attached my latest drawings of Mars. I have been adjusting my scanner with its "professional mode", and lost my way in the labyrinth! How can I reproduce the touch of my color drawings!?

 



  Syrtis Major at the dawn terminator definitely looked light sky blue, which reminded me of my old question "why does the Martian blue cloud/mist look blue?"

I'm still waiting for a big white blob ^^. The last two night seeing was very poor yet nothing was seen here. But the coming two nights should be better and they will by my last chance to chase it until the longitudes turn to the americas.

Hi all, the skies were clear again last night and the seeing reasonable at around midnight when Mars was at maximum altitude (and closest approach).

The bright region of Elysium is at centre, Syrtis Major rising at left and the clouds over olympus Mons setting on the limb at right.
Equatorial high blue haze is visible across the disk and a small patch of what might be raised dust (?)  can be seen obscuring a small part of the outer bright ring of the north polar cap at top.

Hi Guys another clear one on the 11th seeing not too bad for the altitude. Since then we have had really bad jet stream where Mars has looked more like a candle flame !

Its due to pass today and we have a clear one too . Perhaps the solar seeing will be good, often an indicator of things to come later.

This view of Mars reminds me it is the God of War, and also of a Halloween pumpkin. Perhaps the humble pumpkin could be the standard Martian colour reference ?
