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.
