This is our first Mars image for the new apparition, from Marc Delcroix. Despite the small 5.1 arcsec diameter disc we can see North Niliacus Lacus and Mare Acidalium, and East Deuteronilus, and South Chryse very bright, dark Mare Erythraneum, with Sinus Meridiani/Sabeus East. And the North Pole covered with clouds.
