Dick Locke's Mars (from my driveway)
My best effort that night, about two hours before Terry's shot.  You can see the effect of the planet's rotation.  I've "mirror imaged" this from my normal orientation to get in synch with Terry's image.  Early morning, 8/24/03.   See Mars 2003 for more (better!) shots.

Pictures from the 8/23/03 Mars Party. We headed home early to help assure clear skies for all!

Paul doesn't like cloud pictures from star parties...  Sorry, Paul!
