Mars on 2020-10-29 at 08:14 UT, mean time of observation. The image shows Mare Sirenum near the center of the disk and Mare Cimmerium to the left. The dark dot below Mare Sirenum is the crater Newton. Solis Lacus is disappearing around the western limb. Amazonis Planitia is above Mare Sirenum and the Tharsis region to its right. The bright oval at 2:00 is Olympus Mons and this image shows hints of the caldera at its summit as well as the contrast between the cliffs along its edges and the surrounding plains. Arsia Mons is the bright oval above the upward tapering tip of Mare Sirenum.Best 8035 frames from 10 best videos stacked and de-rotated in Winjupos.
