Nilokeras, Tanais, Ascraeus Lacus and Mare Sirenum were the most prominent albedo features. Ascraeus dark and drop-shaped, pointed towards Nilokeras. Interesting dusky streaky features on a.m. hemisphere. Tempe, Xanthe, Phaethontis and Elysium-Cebrenia clearly light. A very faint equatorial cloud band stretched across the disk, thin and homogeneous. NPC was sharp and white.
