This event did not last more than a few days, but one never knows how large such an event may become. I tend to wait a day or two to see how an event develops before posting an alert. The location and rapid development of this storm suggested it would reach larger proportions than it eventually did. If you obtain any observations of Mars, whether dusty or not, please send them direct to me. The 2022 blog at the Section website was recently updated. Good observing!
