Red October

The rotation of Mars over a few hours during the night of October 10 to 11, the weekend closest to this year's martian opposition. Famous martian surface features Syrtis Major Planitia (dark triagular area) and Hellas Planitia (much lighter zone just to the south of the former) will be well in evidence.
