Phobos surface sequence from Mars Express
These five images were acquired using five different channels of the Mars Express High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on September 12, 2017: the nadir channel (center image), the two photometry channels (left and right of the center image) and the stereo channels (on the far left and right). A different area of the moon’s surface can be seen in each image from various viewing angles, allowing models of the surface and shape to be improved.
