As for the north, I'd like to learn more about the haze in the south polar region. This requires overlapping images showing the same surface point from different angles. This is best possible close to the poles, but extending this further to the equator would be nice. This POI adds the benefit to observe the FFRs, and possibly embedded anticyclones. Do FFRs and haze features coincide in some way? I'm also interested in a full and good latitudinal coverage, in order to able to create a pole to pole fly-over movie. Although the gap beween polar images and other POIs is smaller here, than in the north, it would be nice to get overlapping images to infer a light curve for this interesting zone. FFRs have also been reported to show occasional lightnings. With some luck, we may see some on the night side, beyond the terminator.

    I agree it would be very interesting to see this from different angles to see how it changes and varies, in addition to getting various images around the haze area and around the south pole. Maybe the those could be from a variation in radiation around the southern FFRs.

    I think this is because of a possible surface or geological chemical or gas, maybe temperture change ... maybe?

    What's going on here, near the edge of the south polar haze disk? I'd like to see this from different angles, close-up, and animated.
