The southern hemisphere of Phobos, up close

During the last of a series of eight encounters with the martian moon Phobos, the DLR-operated High-Resolution Stereo Camera on ESA's Mars Express spacecraft acquired a detailed view of the martian satellite. The orbiter flew past Phobos at a distance of only 100 kilometres on 9 January 2011 and imaged the southern hemisphere of the irregularly-shaped moon. Researchers at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) planned the image acquisition and processed the resulting data.
