Phobos' south pole from Mars Express
Phobos' south pole from Mars Express On January 9, 2011, Mars Express passed Mars' moon Phobos at a distance of only 111 kilometers. This photo shows the south side of Phobos at a resolution of 8.2 meters per pixel; visit the Mars Express blog to see it at its full resolution of 4.1 meters per pixel. The south pole is marked with a dot and an "S" inside the large crater near the center. Stickney crater, which is positioned at the center of Phobos' leading, Mars-facing quadrant, makes the bite out of the upper right of the globe. ESA / DLR / FU Berlin (G. Neukum)
