CMO No 274 contains:
CMO 2003 Great Mars Report #09 deals with
the observations made during a fortnight
period from 16
to 30 June 2003: The
Martian season proceeded from 204°Ls
to 213°Ls and the apparent diameter increased from 14.4” to 16.5”. The
season entered a dusty period. Still transitional, but already a yellowish haze
covering, maybe caused by the dusty disturbances reported previously, began to
be observed. In Japan
the rainy days prevailed and the observation rates lessened, but at Okinawa
the rainy season ended on 21 June, and MINAMI moved to Naha
to observe Mars. In the US,
PARKER and GRAFTON produced excellent ccd images of
the areas of Solis L, Aurorae S and M Erythraeum.
to the Editor records
a number of mails (mostly emails) received during the fortnight period from 25 June to 9
July 2003. Here are included the mails from
37 persons. Here is included an email
from Tom DOBBINS on several concrete suggestions which are very helpful when we
try to observe the glint phenomena on Mars.
years ago, at this time of the year the CMO was published monthly,
and so no corresponding “Ten Years Ago” article this time.
