<How to use Mars Mapper
The app opens with the current Martian aspect presented to Earth, but not the Red Planet's phase. You can step forward or backwards in time in increments of one hour, or an Earth day (a Martian day is 24h 37m long), or click the 'Reset to now' button to return to the present. If you wish to display Mars for a specific date (day/month/year format) and time, enter the desired values and click the 'Recalculate' button. Mars Mapper 2020 uses 24-hour format Universal Time (UT), so UK-based observers should deduct one hour from British Summer Time while it is in force. To preserve accuracy, you may only enter dates and times between 1 August and 31 December 2020>
