At 06:54:59 UT the Mars Webcam takes this new image of the ongoing phenomenon on the Arsia Mons volcano.
This image is the number 41 of a series of 58 photos!
At well over two months the plume is still perfectly active and even if its proximity to the terminator prevents us from estimating its length the shadow cast is still very dark.
Unfortunately, due to the orbit of Mars Express, in the coming weeks the images of Mars will show us a thinner and thinner crescent limiting the view of the plume in increasingly unfavorable perspectives.
We hope not to miss the end of the phenomenon, also because if it remained active long enough, the situation would become really embarrassing for those who support the thesis of the “orographic cloud”!
