Here's the saddle:

PS one of the most amazing views in the solar system would be had from the righthand hill here, looking across the 10 km wide saddle to the other hill, with Mars in the background surrounding that hill like a halo.

I'm getting closer but not quite there yet. Maybe I should change my avatar to Deimos biggrin.gif

Here's another image of Phobos from the PSA. It's not so hard to use once you get into it. I was misled slightly by the image size in the label, as I had to open this as a raw image in Photoshop, but once you remember to add the line prefix pixels to the width of the image it's OK.

If you compare this with the last one, it's a mirror image. This is the ND2 image and it's reversed. The previous Phobos post was SR2, and it's right-reading.

I was going to use the latest Deimos image but I really prefer Phobos. Luckily, ugordan made a nice PNG image for me based on my favorite MOC image of Phobos. Hopefully, this should alleviate the bandwidth issues some were having loading my previous Phobos avatar, which was an offsite image at MSSS.

Uh, oh. I hate to point it out but I can see a face in that image! Not so much on the thumbnail version as on the fullsize one. It kind of pops out there. (It's on the righthand side looking toward the right: two eyes--one round, the other sort of orientalish--a flat nose, and the lefthand cheek, a kind of sneer or grimace for a mouth.)

Maybe you shouldn't have shown us that pic! Now we'll be hearing about The Face on Deimos and how NASA tried to hide it from us. smile.gif

I'll bet ESA PAO never used this one on the kooks: "Pardon moi. One of our scientists accidentally included one of his wife's ultrasound images." tongue.gif

There are probably faces all over it. The first one I noticed is facing to the left and down. Big white lips at bottom of image, teardrop-shaped eye above, nose in profile flush with upper lip. In fact the whole thing seems to be a giant head sculpture obviously made by the Roswell people (who also influenced the Olmecs) . . .

Check out this abstract from the new EGU meeting: Greg Michaels on a new HRSC data viewer. Very promising. Also news of the release of HRSC-derived topography data.

(or go to:

http://www.cosis.net/members/meetings/sess...88baf6c8092ff18

and find his abstract in the middle of the page, or failing that go to:

http://www.cosis.net/members/meetings/prog...88baf6c8092ff18

and find the mars session in the middle of that page.

Hey, come on people, give us some simple URLs! All that search stuff is unnecessary or should be hidden.

This is great to see Phil. I think NASA and the various PI's (notably MSSS, THEMIS, the MER/Athena teams and the HiRISE team, Cassini to a lesser extent) have really set a high standard for outreach and no doubt the ESA is feeling some heat for keeping its data so close. But that is not to in any way discourage them from this generous initiative.
