That's a very good shot Ben.

I'm having trouble pinpointing each feature, even as I use a Mars globe. I can only imaging the greyish area on the right limb is the Northern Polar Cap. If that's the case, that very dark spot on the upper right may be Sharonov, and the bright vertical stretch on the right half of the sphere is Arabia Terra...maybe.
