Cloudy on Mount St Helens and Mars!

The Volcanocam was playing up last night and images were not being transmitted to the server between twilight until almost 01:00 am, after that the view of the mountain was obscured by fog & clouds for the entire evening - so no glow...

On a different planet, Mars, clouds are less of a problem and far more fascinating. The Mars Exploration Rover website has released a new image showing whispy cirrus clouds in the Martian sky above the Endurance Crater. There's something about seeing clouds in the sky that makes Mars feel a little less alien and a little more welcoming - at least to my mind.

Great work on the nighttime images, seeing the glow through all that static is fantastic.

Quick note about the above post, I think you meant Mars Exploration Rover (instead of Mars Express)
