Phobos Close Up

Hey Space Placers!

Check out the UNREAL photos of Phobos, one of Mars' two moons.

There is some speculation that Phobos and Mars' other moon, Diemos, are captured asteroids. They have very dark surfaces and are very small compared to typical "spherical" moons such as our own Moon.

I hope the Russians are successful in their upcoming launch and mission to Phobos.
