Subject: First Mars drawings of the season
Dear Richard, Masatsugu and Dan,
I send you here the first visual
observations of Mars I have made this year. I am now (since June 2) a post-doc
associate researcher at the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory in
The drawings are scanned and annoted in the computer. Is this they way you would like the visual drawings sent to you, as jpg files, or do you rather prefer photocopies? What I would like to do in the future, after producing an updated observing form, is to send the complete scanned form (A4 or letter size) as a jpg, including the descriptions etc. That would be the smallest amount of work for me. Tell me what you prefer.
As for Mars, the detail around Solis Lacus has been rather difficult to make out clearly, except for the June 19 obs where I'm quite confident of what I saw. Interesting detail in the SPC, due to SPH remnants? Persistent haze at the N limb, due to the NPH? The pm limb haze has been very thin and well defined, as well as an isolated equatorial am cloud.
Phew, it's hot here in the
Saguaro desert! Some 40 Centigrades and sunshine all
the time! Not what I am used to from
All the best wishes,
Johan WARELL (Lunar and Planetary
