Good morning. It's February 12, and today's image is a real treat from the surface of Mars.

In it we see the larger of Mars' two moons, Phobos, passing in front of the Sun.

[...] NASA released a bunch of these raw images last week, and planetary scientist Paul Byrne helpfully put them into a video sequence that can be seen here.

    What immediately jumped out at me what that either the camera is colored in multicolored dust, or someone added a bunch of fake stars to the picture.

      Neither. That's noise from a very fast digital exposure.

      Those are probably demonic gates opening up on Phobos so that Doomguy have things to shoot at.
