λ=194°Ls, (ω=215°~ 229°W, φ=20°S), δ=12.2", ι (phase angle)=43°
Seeing good (8-9, Pickering). No wind. Transparency 4m with high haze/fog.
Heavy dew. Altitude = 43-47°.
Small localized clouds (rotate with planet) on SW limb over extreme eastern Hellas, western Ausonia. These are well-defined in red light, very bright in blue and green. Thin AM limb arc; north polar clouds. Elysium cloud free.
Trivium-Cerberus remains weak; Hyblaeus Extension very dark, appears elongated, most likely due to foreshortening.
