Co2 causes ice caps to melt? Those little green men are at it, even on mars!

Amateur astronomer Thomas Williamson of New Mexico took this picture of Mars on August 1st. He used an 8-inch telescope and a digital web camera

Mars has gotten so big in recent weeks that even a backyard telescope will show details on the planet’s surface: dust clouds, volcanic terrains, impact basins. Best of all is the polar ice cap. The southern hemisphere of Mars is tipped toward Earth and its bright southern cap, which reflects more sunlight than any other part of the planet, is remarkably easy to see.

Don’t wait too long to look, though, because the ice is melting. Like Earth, Mars has seasons that cause its polar caps to wax and wane. Lately, for instance, amateur astronomers using 8-inch and larger telescopes have been watching a frosty mountain range emerge from the ice.

  1. Earth to PriNZess! Earth to PriNZess! This is mission control. We have a new assignment for you. There’s evidence of CO2 on Mars. Your assignment is to visit, pull a few faces, act concerned & issue a moratorium on drilling for oil & gas!
