Phobos mission prepares for Phobos approach
With the Phobos mission rocket in a stable orbit near Phobos (upper right), the command module departs so that it may approach to within a few hundred yards of the martin moon. 6,000 miles below on Mars can be seen Meridiani Planum where NASA's Opportunity rover landed in 2004, while the Sun is setting over Ganges and Eos chasmata.
