Legendary astroimager Don Parker of Coral Gables, Florida, has sent an amazing new shot of the Red Planet he made February 20, 2012. “The north polar cap’s edge appears to be breaking up as it enters the rapid regression phase,” said Don. “Late morning cloud over Ascraeus with clouds and hazes extending from eastern Tharsis across Candor and Chryse. Post-front seeing was highly variable.”

A great martian image and Red Planet weather report for the middle of the week!
