Mars image set from this morning. Olympus Mons at lower left(I am sure this time!)
Just to try and solve the mystery of the terminator bright spot from 30 April,
which I had initially incorrectly identified as OM,I waited for the same CM this morning.
I found no trace of any feature,as per attached comparison images.
The spot was brightest in red on the 30 Apr,although was also detectable in IR and G,but not blue.
As Roger suggested,possibly a small,condensed spot of dust activity?
