Don't feel bad...Mars is notorious for being difficult in revealing clear details. When it's closest, it tends to kick up global dust storms. When it's farthest, it looks very small in 'scopes. The details of the surface are easily blurred by the Earth's atmosphere.
yea well since that post i decude to make my dream to travel to mars to kick it in it's face (no pun inteaded) mars is almsot as bad as the sun it seems like an amzing place but it wont let you see it.
