@. . . . . . I did some CCD imaging at (10-28) with a red filter Wr. #25. Just to inform you that at 306
CM longitude, there is one big bright area, brighter than the SPC from Hellas
across to Mare Serpentis, Hellespontus and Noachis regions. It covers nearly
the whole southern hemisphere. I don't know if this is frost or another development
of the dust clouds. It looks unusually. The seeing was no better than average.
will follow shortly.

@ . . . . . . Here is my image of Mars 10-28-2001.
many of you about a very bright area in the southern hemisphere. Now after I
processed, I have a pretty good description. You can easily see the very bright
area in and out around Hellas. Syrtis Major looks very
thin with perhaps some dust clouds still scatter around.†††††
@ . . . . . . .Thanks for your e-mail. Yes, I was
kind of surprised when I heard about the plane crash near my parents' house
which they live on the opposite direction of JFK airport. My father could see
the black smoke toward his SW direction. I live toward out east. My mother
works in Queens and a lot of people were panic as they
believe it could be the terrorist attack. As of now, no word yet of what causes
the plane to crash. The security is very tight and they close all bridges and
tunnels to Manhatten most of the day. So, letís see what happens.
††††I just about to e-mail you my latest image of
Mars on 11-10-2001.
