First Day of Summer for Phoenix

It’s those lazy hazy crazy days of summer here on Earth. At least in the northern hemisphere. Today is also the first day of Northern summer on Mars.

In case you think a stowaway bug on the Phoenix lander can break out those sodas and pretzels and beer, consider the weather report from the landing site here on the right.

Remember the corollary coordinates on Earth would be in northwest Canada, near the Great Bear Lake.

Not exactly a place for Bermuda shorts and bikinis.
