watching Mars these days, as we have our house full of guests.
Yes, it's true, being a visual Mars observer, I feel I'm "one of the last dinosaurs". But with you observing visually too, at least I'm in very good company! I know I'm missing a lot of surface detail, but basically, it's the atmospheric phenomena that count, and I believe I'm able to observe those reasonably well.
Wayne, Gabriel and Mira all send their best regards - which, of course, I do too. Clear skies to you!

Dear Masami MURAKAMI and Masatsugu,
In response to your e-mail "CMO 2003 News #5" I should like to inform you that as I observed Mars last night (August 7 at UT, with a CM of 158.3°), I noticed that the following about-one-fourth of the SPC looked thin and shadowy. I was quite unprepared for this sight (I just read your email, and it is now mid-afternoon here), and the last time I observed - on August 5, also just after UT - I did not notice anything of the kind. So your message was most pertinent, it seems... and right on the mark.
