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.
