Mars from backyard

Mars from backyard

Nice view of Mars from my backyard showing the polar cap to the upper left and clouds around the southern pole to the lower right. The dim white spot at 2 oclock about 2/3 of the way from the centre to the edge is where Olympus Mons is and may be clouds over the peak. This image was taken 12 days after opposition and only 4 days after its closest approach to earth.
