解説(安達)/ Comment by Makoto Adachi

No significant change can be seen in the clearance of SPC.
The faint part of the dust storm near Hellespontus
is clear today as well. In the image of Mr. Kumamori the inside of the SPC was recorded in detail. A streaky white part was seen,
and a complicated appearance was seen.
In the image of Mr. Milika-Nicholas,light spots on the northern side of Meridiani are also visible today. Hellas was observed
somewhat reddish. This situation was also clearly understood by Mr. Ota and the author's observation.

Mars 3 days before opposition. I had suspected some limb softening yesterday,
but today there appears to be a significant limb brightening around the planet,most noticeable in the B image.
I don’t recall anything similar in 2016- possibly due to the dust ?
S Meridiani starting to be a bit more obvious in visual wavelengths.
I will try and do a bit more work on it,but I did a quick comparison of the IR’s from yesterday and today,
specifically looking at the bright regions just south of Meridiani and Margaritifer.
My initial conclusion was that there was limited significant changes- possibly pointing to the bright regions being settled on the surface? Comments welcome.
Subtle light cloud can be seen extending off the NP region in the B image
On a lighter note,it almost appears as if the northern section of Margaritifer has detached and moved north during the storm

この日のヘラスはR IR撮像時にこのところでは最も明るく、南極冠よりもむしろ明るく感じた。一見ヘラスが飛び出し立体的に膨らんでいるようにも見えた。

Obtained some reasonable results despite shooting through thin,high clouds on July 24th - these iR610nm
& r-filter captures reveal some fairly good detail with Schiaparelli almost right on the CM.

Attached is an observation of Mars I made on the 24th July with Jon Culshaw in Hampstead using his 6 inch SCT telescope.
We had a fine view of the Mars over London,and although the planet was low down seeing wasn't too bad.
The main feature on the disk was Solis Lacus,the bright south polar cap can be seen along with a brightening in the far north which is likely to be the northern polar hood.
