Mars Chart 13 (MC13), Syrtis Major, with Isidis Planitia (Isidis Basin) to the east. Jezero Crater is in the North-East of Syrtis Major, the North-West of Isidis, and has a large mountain on it's Eastern crater wall.

The Perseverance Rover, M20, is navigating its way around Jezero Crater, which is located on the flanks of Syrtis Major and to the North-West of the Isidis Basin. Jezero is easily identified the large mountain on it's Eastern crater wall.

To put things in perspective, Syrtis Major is a volcanic mountain, made from black volcanic basalt, covering over a million square kilometres and easily seen from Earth. In fact it's large, black mass was the first topological feature identified on Mars. Jezero Crater once contained a lake, with water inflowing from the North-West, and outflowing through a breach in the East-South-East. Where that water went may be the subject of future missions.

Perseverance has been examining the crater floor, testing its equipment, and is currently en-route to the silt fan, left by the water flowing into crater.

Historical Data

Data gathered from the NASA servers may be subject to corrections based on newer data. This is performed by NASA, not me. Any data that is within the last 7 data-rows is within the frame that may be updated. Any updates are automatically applied to the tables below, and all charts and derived tables (such as the record high and low temperatures) are updated accordingly.

Some tables show results after smoothing the data to remove anomolies. I have clearly marked all data that has been smoothed so there is no ambiguity. The method of smoothing out the anomolies is simple and efficient, although not guaranteed to remove them all. Essentially, if a temperature reading is ≥±10°C from the previous valid reading, it's probably an anomoly and is rejected.

    Martian Day

    The Martian day is 39 mins 35.244 secs longer than a standard day. This means that approx every 36.1 days the Earth weather date skips a day while the Martian Sol marches on as normal. You can see this in the Insight data. April 16th 2019 seems to be missing, yet the Sols on April 15th and April 17th are consecutive.

  • Orbital Calculatorplugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigOrbital Calculator

    I needed to calculate orbital characteristics for any orbit around any gravitational mass (because I write sci-fi stories), so I wrote this program because I'm a programmer and I'm too lazy to do it by hand all the time. The program has expanded over the last few years, sometimes from suggestions by other writers. I make it freely available and as simple to use as possible. It now has a list of functions as long as your arm (assuming you're not a tentacle user), and the numbe…
