This is the first work Javier Fuertes has sent to us. Javier is a Spanish astronomy amateur based in Leon, northern Spain. He took the pictures of Mars on 02.Feb with his DBK 21AU04.AS astronomy camera, and with the help of Image Ready 9.0 he put them into one animation. This animation depicts Mars' rotation between 20:55 and 21:55 UT.
