There has been further activity upon Mars. There was some local activity in Hellas, which now seems to be finished, a very brief episode of local dust activity in the Argyre basin, and a few days ago (possibly ongoing) there was some dust along Valles Marineris. Of course, the planet is still far from opposition and the disk tiny, but we need more well equipped observers to check all longitudes to provide a good level of coverage. The 2018 opposition showed that we must expect the unexpected….The Section’s 2020 blog has just been updated today. Good observing!
