Phobos in High-Definition
On 23 July 2008, the High Resolution Stereo Camera on board the European Space Agency's Mars Express took the highest-resolution full-disc image yet of the surface of the moon Phobos.
The image data was acquired from a distance of 97 km with a spatial resolution of about 3.7 m/pixel in orbit 5,851. These images have surpassed all previous images from other missions in continuous coverage of the illuminated surface at the highest spatial resolution of 3.7 m/pixel.
This image has been geometrically corrected and exhibits the original illumination and photometric conditions.
