Good to see that Hubble got a full opposition set this time (other than 2003, it hasn't since the 1990s). I imaging that time competition isn't as fierce right now given that ACS and STIS aren't working. Still, since WFPC/2 has been tracking Mars for so long, it is great to see that it has extended its run to one more opposition of global coverage.

Also, I fleshed out the composite they made to add Hubble's first two oppositions. It has now completed the 17 year opposition cycle.
