Mars in March

Here is Mars from March 9th, 2012.  Lots and lots of clouds on Mars this day.  Syrtis Major is visible on the left and there's a bright cloud hovering over the volcano Elysium Mons on the right.  A little detail is visible in the north polar cap as well.

Taken with a Celestron 9.25" SCT, 3x barlow, Skynyx video camera with RGB filters.

Saw a rabbit in the yard - no skunks though.
