Information on the observations of Mars made at Soviet observatories during the opposition of 1956 is presented. Photographs and spectrograms of individual portions of the surface of Mars taken at many observatories through various light filters and polarimetric and micrometric measurements are discussed. Infrared photographs of Mars were obtained with an image translator. Numerous images of the planet were made in total light and through filters. Special electrophotometers were used to compare the brightness of various portions of Mars in different spectral regions.
