Mars Express HRSC 3D image of Phobos, taken on 7 March 2010
May 13, 2010
The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) onboard the ESA spacecraft Mars Express took the images for this stereo composite of the surface of the moon Phobos on 7 March 2010. Due to the stereo viewing geometry during the flyby a small part of the moon's edge is only visible for the right eye resulting in odd 3D-perception in this area. Image data were taken from a distance of 130 km with a spatial resolution of about 4.4 meters per pixel in orbit 7915.
