The Oddesey oribiter which has been photographing the surface of mars for 16 years took its first photograph of Phobos using it’s THEMIS technology. This is the first infrared photograph of the tiny Mars moon. Nasa only recently developed the maneuver to point the orbiter up at Phobos which is why it has taken so long to get the image. With a THEMIS photograph we can try to determine its origin story. Some scientists think mars once had rings like Saturn and the rings in time consolidated into moons.
