ESA has released the first image from Mars Express' recent close flybys of Phobos, posted below! For a little review on Phobos' geography and why Mars Express is uniquely suited to imaging it, check out this earlier blog post on some of the many images from Mars Express' archived data. In the two years since I wrote that post, many many more photos have hit the archive -- I need to update it! Also, don't forget you can print, cut, and assemble your own lumpy model of Phobos, thanks to Chuck Clark.
