Here is the first NASA picture of Phobos

Phobos is of oval shape and its average diameter is about 22 kilometers. Earlier, Mars had taken photos of high-resolution photos of Phobos, but scientists did not get any information regarding Infrared.


NASA has said in a statement that many bands of thermal-infrared waves have gathered information about the surface structure and texture of the surface. Jonathan Hill, the planner of THEMIS Mission from Arizona State University, said, “THEMIS has been on Mars for the last 16 years, but for the first time we have been able to fold the spacecraft to see Phobos.”
