解説(安達)/ Comment by Makoto Adachi
ダストストームはAonius北部の濃い部分は今日も健在だ。Mare Cimmeriumの中央部のダストストームは南北を横切っている。
7月12日に発生したArsia Silva Monsのすぐ東にできた小さなスポットは向きが変わった。地表の模様ではないらしい。それに
Mare Acidariumのダストストームが淡くなってきたようで、下の暗い模様がぼんやり見えるようになってきている。SPC付近と
Clyde Foster氏はダストストームの中でも
Arsia Silva Monsに白雲が見える様子を記録している。

The clearance of SPC in southern Noachis became slightly smaller. The sunny weather in southern Aonius moved to a little. Most part
is covered with dust storm,making it difficult to see.
The dust storm is still alive today in the northern part of Aonius. The dust storm in the center of Mare Cimmerium crosses the north
and south. A small spot just east of Arsia Silva Mons that occurred on July 12th turned direction. It seems that it is not a pattern on the
surface. Even so,it is very strange that the shape does not change at the same position on 12th and 13th.
The dust storm of Mare Acidarium seems to be getting dim,and the dark patterns underneath are becoming blurry. It is in contrast
to near the SPC. You can see how cool the cold air blow from the SPC is. white clouds became very noticeable near the Arctic.
Mr. Clyde Foster records the appearance of white clouds in Arsia Silva Mons even in the dust storm.

Two similar images with the Tyrrhenum region on the CM.
That from the 14th was captured at only 13〓 alt.,but seeing was better. Mars is now nearly full.
In previous images I wasn’t getting the axial orientation exactly vertical.
I’ve found the method in WinJUPOS of correcting that now (Recording: Image Measurement:
Adjustment: Outline Frame: Rotate outline frame as if image were captured to Equatorial system).

This is two images derotated in WinJUPOS.

Decent overall conditions this session and I will likely send 1-2 more derotated observations later on,time allowing.

The monsoon is still going strong here making imaging a challenge.
Transparency was poor and I had to image through clouds. Seeing was also a challenge.
Mars is still engulfed in dust. The albedo features are still a challenge to recognize.
However,Valles Marineris is prominent in the center of the CM due to bright dust!
The three Tharsis volcanoes can be seen rising on the left.
Note the bright spot on Solis Lacus. The south polar caps is yellowish due to dust.
Note the bluish protrusion on the left of the south polar cap. Are

Mars image set from yesterday evening,with Olympus Mons prominent at lower centre and the three other main Tharsis volcanoes also very obvious.
I suspect ongoing dust activity in the high southern latitudes.
Maybe a promising sign- the light markings to the south west of OM may be re-appearing?

Two acquisitions of Mars from July 14 by myself and Christoffer Svenske, 
at a time when the dust storm raged and contrast was very low. One image is with a 290MM camera RGB+742 filter, 
the other with a DBK21AU618 camera RGB. Obtained from Tenerife.
Visually, only the two or three darkest parts of the albedo features, and the northern limb haze, could be glimpsed.
