Home Forums Mars Mars dust storm alert Update

Dust now reached southern Hellespontus on the eastern side, and may start to become visible from the longitude of the USA if it spreads further east. Meanwhile UK and European observers are getting good views of the western side which reaches as far west as about Aonius Sinus, but you do need to observe early to see it near the CM: I had a good view around 17.30UT yesterday. From the longitudes of Japan and Australia the central part of the storm is well-placed. I am inclined to think it will not spread any further…… but it is an impressive sight.

Good observing!
