    Well, pointless for now...


    Which brings us to another interesting question: how would one translate the sun/star tables from earth to mars? I'm sure there is a way to mathematically map them from one to another; I'm also sure I wouldn't have a clue how it would be done. All I know is that the Ares values for star positions should be the same. (I think? )

    p.s. Also out of pointless curiosity, I looked up Morfydd in a Welsh-English translator. All it came up with is "die", which strikes me as odd for a first name.  What would it translate to, if anything?

    In a pique of poinless curiosity, I searched for reduction tables for Martian surface travellers. I couldn't find any. But I'm sure someone somewhere has tabulated Lunars for Deimos and Phobos. Attached is and image of Mars' pole star, Deneb.
