Mission to Phobos by Ludo38 Mission to Phobos by Ludo38

I've been wanting to depict Phobos from that angle for a long long time...

In case you don't know, Phobos is the main moon of Mars (the other being Deimos) and rotates close to Mars (about 9,400 km from its surface - considering Mars has a diameter of 6,779 km), which means when on Phobos, you would have a majestic sight on Mars. Also, Phobos has almost no gravity, which means you could almost approach it as an asteroid, which differs a lot from approaching our Moon.

I've worked around 6 hours on this photomanipulation, made with Gimp (+ a 3D sphere mapping of Mars with Blender).

All on Linux-Ubuntu.

All of my Mars art is detailed on my Da Vinci Mars Design blog : davinci-marsdesign.blogspot.fr…

You used images of the Moon's surface to do this, didn't you?  Very nicely done.

Thank you ! Yes, I used two Moon surface photos. One from Apollo 16 and one from A.17.
I can't wait for the time we will have surface shots of Phobos itself !

No, this is a random crater, a very small one. Stickney is HUGE, the size of a medium town.
I have an idea for some epic image with Stickney Crater which I will try to create someday.
