解説(安達)/ Comment by Makoto Adachi
 このような地域が、今日は見られ、Aurorae Sinusから北西方向にそのような部分が見られる。今回からは、その部分を茶色に着色している。
 ダストストームの晴れている領域はMare Cimmeriumよりも東の暗色模様の地域である。なぜか、この部分は、今回のダストストーム
では取り残された地域と言える。今日はMare Cimmeriumを横切る雲が見えたことから、この部分もこれからダストストームに
 今日はSyrtis Majorの北半分が晴れ間から見えており、肉眼でもその姿を淡くとらえることができた。また、これにつながって
Sinus Sabaeusも一部が見えており、淡いながらもおなじみの姿に近い表面の様子が見えた。この様子は荒川・安達・井上の各氏が
 Javier Fuertes氏は、Mare Sirenunの東の先端部分に明るいダストスポットを記録した。

In a report from everyone, it was possible to record the situation of the whole week's dust storm for the first time. In the early days of 
the dust storm where the dust storm has progressed, there is always a part that looks bright. Marineris faces that, in images it is 
always yellow and bright and looking the same way. Just like this, anything that always looks brighter on any image, and that is reflected 
brightly at the IR, is considered to be the place where sand accumulated on the surface of the earth.
Such areas are seen today, such parts can be seen northwest from Aurorae Sinus. From this time it is colored brown. If I find it in the future, 
I would like to change the color in the same way and show it.
The sunny area of the dust storm is a darker area in the east than Mare Cimmerium. For some reason, this part can be said to have been 
left behind in this dust storm. As we saw the clouds crossing the Mare Cimmerium today, it seems that this part will be covered with 
the dust storm from now on.
Today, the northern half of Syrtis Major is visible from the clear, and even with the visual image it was able to grasp the figure pale. 
Also connected to this, Sinus Sabaeus was also able to see a part, and although it was pale, I could see the appearance of the surface 
close to the familiar figure. This situation is captured by Mr. Arakawa, Adachi and Inoue.
The situation of the SPC is terrible at today's observation. Dust storms are covered here and there seems to be about 10% that is 
completely visible. The sunny part seems to be only on the south side of Argyre. This part overlaps the sunny region of the dust storm 
on the north side.
  Mr. Javier Fuertes recorded a bright dust spot on the east tip of Mare Sirenun.

Finally after two weeks of clouds and poor seeing I was able to get in a decent observation of dusty Mars!
Will also try some derotation of this data set later in the week.

Here are the green channels from this set,showing the current extent of the dust areas of 6/16 UT from this side of Mars.

Here is a first attempt at derotation for Mars from me.

A bit of a delay in processing due to a rather nice Father’s day weekend.
I continue to monitor the region between CM 40 and 90,including Vallis Marineris and Solis Lacus.
Conditions were rather poor and RGB data was not good,although the IR was a bit better,

Some moments of good seeing this night. A lovely detailed view of Mare Sirenum. Dust and haze across the SPC.
Thick dust obscuration over on the left side of the disk over Mare Tyrrhenum and over Elysium.
