The European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft that is orbiting Mars made a close (only 67 km) flyby of Phobos on March 7th and the pictures were released yesterday. It will continue to observe the small moon until the end of March when it will pass out of range.

It also spotted the planned landing sites for the Russian Phobos-Grunt sample return mission that will launch in 2011 or 2012. Beautiful stuff!
