Set to the music of "Mars" from Gustav Holst's "The Planets".  We zoom into the 5th power Mandelbrot fractal. This is part of a small series using Holst's music.  I got the inspiration to do this from previous zooms where I have tried to match the time signature to the fractal's power.  Very little music is written in 5:4.  Holst's "Mars" is in 5:4.  You may notice that this music is quite similar to parts of Star Wars, indeed, Holst was the inspiration for the Star Wars music.

This fractal is particularly appropriate, as you will notice that the 4-bulb mini-Mandelbrots are surrounded by 5-sided shapes. The 5-way symmetry in parts of the fractal is quite interesting. For colouring I chose the colours of fire, to reflect the "Bringer of War" character.
