Throughout the night, I had been looking at Polaris to do star trails. While strolling around at the foot of the Grandstand, one of the mounds with a dome shape stood out for me. While trying to keep myself warm, I wondered about the star trails seen from Mars. The temperature at the Racetrack was about the average high temperature high (36F) in July in Gale Crater on Mars, where Curiosity, NASA’s Mar rover, roamed around. It was time to pack up my gear and say good night to the monolith.
