4th rock from the sun dug up two jewels that are probably pending release at the ESA web. You can find them here. One image shows a beautiful Phobos hanging above Mars' hazy limb, while the other shows an oblique view at some hilly Mars terrain.

Can anybody pull out the separate frames from that Phobos animation?

I'm wondering if it's possible to make a color version, given that there are different filters (and knowing you'd have to account for the motion of Phobos with a little cutting and pasting), but I can't seem to make Imageready open the AVI sad.gif

That is a nice, evocative image of Phobos. Thanks, 4th rock from the sun and Gordan.

Both pictures are very evocative but they are MEX HRSC shots not from Rosetta.

The observation shown here was accomplished on 10 January 2007 in orbit 3868 with one the HRSC Stereokanšle and with a dissolution of 70 meters per pixel (for Phobos).

Thanks. I guess that's why one of the captions has "HRSC" in it, right?

(anyway, the name they use for the original images is misleading because contains Rosetta)

Is that real color or generated? If generated, very good! It looks a lot like real color images based on two color data, such as this one from Phobos-2.

Nice processing!

Yes, they are Mars Express images, that much I could make out of the German text ;-) As far as I could read the titles and captions, these images are illustrative of the results expected from Rosetta or of observations by Mars Express in coordination with the Rosetta flyby. Let's wait and see!

Not real colors, but I was inspired precisely from these pictures! wink.gif
This is a different version I like too (with more colors and gradual variations):

What's interesting is the Phobos (and Deimos) imagery we never saw. Namely, from Nozomi and, as I mentioned here, DS1.

The synoptic views from Rosetta and Mars Express are evocative, especially since almost all of the Mars imagery we're familiar with recently are from low-altitude, polar-orbiting mappers.

Sadly, NASA is ignoring this stunning imagery (nor APOD nor Homepage): I understand this is a ESA product, not payed by americans, but I was expecting at least a small mention!
Same story for Sky&Telescope and SpaceWeather sites... sad.gif
