Phobos and Deimos Martian Moons Gallery Index
Last Updated September 25, 2006.
This gallery is devoted to the two Martian moons Phobos and Deimos, which were discovered in 1877 by the American astronomer Asaph Hall at the United States Naval Observatory. The images of Phobos and Deimos seen here have all been digitally enhanced and manipulated in a variety of ways to varying extents. These images range from accurate portrayals of the moons to artistic interpretations.
All the images of Phobos seen here are false color images. The raw image data used to create these pictures lacked any color information. Therefore, the application of color to these images was done subjectively by the artist.
Images are listed here based on the order in which they were added to the Martian Moons Gallery, not the order in which they were created. The most recently added image appears at the top of the list.
