  1. Very good way to say: this is what you can expect to see observing planet Mars!

  2. Sorry for the delay in responding to this most outstanding post, the Easter holiday got in the way!
    I think this is the most delightful posting I have seen on ASOD. Each of those sketches is beautiful, different & personal, each has been crafted with devotion by a passionate astronomer, from across our globe. Each of the drawings carries equal merit in my book.

    This collaboration and resulting composite are truly inspirational, I salute you all 🙂
