This animation is based upon the Phobos shape model and photomosaics of Phil Stooke, and the USGS hemispheric mosaics of Syrtis and Schiaparelli for Mars. The Sun, Phobos and Mars are appropriately scaled in size and distance. The view is a mild telephoto, with a width of 37 degrees. Phobos is over a point on the Martian equator at 323 degrees W, where it is local noon with the sun 10 degrees north of the equator. Orange Marslight "fills in" the side of Phobos towards Mars.
