A different side of Mars. Here, Mare Cimmerium runs around the right limb, and dark Syrtis Major extends from left of center to the upper left. Between them is dark Mare Tyrrhenum. South here is to the lower right. "Mars with 'the Face,' " writes imager Jim Militello of Tucson, referring to the markings in the bright region of Hellas between Tyrrhenum and the South Polar Cap. Militello took this image on October 9th with a 14.5-inch Starmaster scope and a Skyris video camera.
