Dear Masatsugu,


A scanned image is attached, showing a drawing that I made this morning. On the actual form there are notes regarding the appearance of different features in different colored filters. Syrtis Major, on the terminator, was easy in IL and orange, almost disappearing in blue. Hellas, somewhat surprisingly, was brighter in blue that in IL or orange.


Yesterday David and I drove to New Jersey to visit Colleen, and it was 1:00 am when we got home. I almost slept in this morning and would have missed the good seeing had I done so. I will send you a photo of David and Colleen visiting the Princeton University campus. Neither of them wants to go to school there. We just went to see the sights.

Here is a photo of a rainbow - or, perhaps I should say, water hose bow -made by a water hose in our back yard.

Dear Masatsugu,

Here is a sketch that I made this morning. I have more sketches and notes that I will send you later.

Dear Masatsugu,

Another Mars drawing, made on June 30, is attached. I noted Hellas as dusky at that time, and I did not record any suspicion of dust. Iapygia was bright, but I thought this was due to blue mist.

The attached is a scanned image of a Mars drawing made on June 26. On that date Iapygia was easily and consistently seen as blue, a sight well worth getting up early for.
