It seems to be the month for stunning Mars images. Not just from the spacecraft, but from amateurs too. Damian Peach, who gets amazing and incredible results whenever he looks at the sky, sent me this animation. It’s a compilation of his 2005 images of Mars, comprising a full rotation of the planet. As Mars sails into the morning skies ahead of its opposition at the end of the year, it’s a reminder of just how good Earthbound views can be.
