Machi, I honestly think it's time you actually came clean and admitted you're a Time Lord, with a TARDIS, and you spend your days zipping back and forth in time, scooting across the solar system from planet to planet, photographing and filming these amazing sights and events you show us...! laugh.gif

Beautiful stuff, thanks.

WOW! Outstanding! I really like this one machi. It really gives me a sense of what it would be like in orbit around Mars. Maybe one day wheel.gif

Thanks!

Second version with timewarp 10. Thus, animation is longer, but now it's more difficult to see slow dust storm movement over martian terrain.

Thanks for kind words!

And now for something completely similar.

You can see area between Deuteronilus Mensae and Protonilus Mensae with craters Lyot (big crater in the middle part of image), Mareux, Quenisset, Rudaux and Lomonosov (big crater under thick haze at the top-left) .

Machi, those "Storm and Shadow" clips are AMAZING! Would you be willing to put them up on YouTube or Vimeo so I could embed them on my blog? I really enjoy pointing out motion and dynamic actions from space.

Wow! I love the standing wave clouds in the lee of that large crater.

I'm loving this thread in the same way I've been loving the recent Voyager at Jupiter thread!

(In proper Oliver Twist tone "Please sir, can I have some more!?") And thankyou.
