Friends of Mars,

This is just a quick notice informing you that the next series of
HST observations of Mars will be obtained this coming Monday, March 10,
from 0630 to 1830 Greenwich Mean Time (UT).  These observations will
cover three separate hemispheres through many different color filters.
Supporting groundbased visual observations, photographs, drawings,
or CCD images of Mars shortly before, during, and shortly after this 
time period could be extremely helpful in interpreting the HST data.
If you are able to obtain observations, please email your results or
upload them using the instructions at the URL:

The next planned set of HST images wil occur around March 26-31.
More details will be forthcoming.
