sun- and nightsides of Mars, along with a numerical readout of the time
in 24-hour format.

Other displays include a plot showing the
relative orbital positions of Mars and Earth and a diagram showing the
solar angle for a given location on Mars.

The latest version of Mars24 is 5.1.2, released 2003-12-22.
