Is there a relation between what was imaged leaving the "shadow" on MARS, seen here in RUSSIAN PHOBOS II photo,

and what is captured in the image by PHOBOS II in the image below before its (said to be) final malfunction?

Here is one of the photos last taken from the PHOBOS II MARS orbit probe before it went offline, courtesy of Marina Popovich a retired Soviet Air Force colonel who shared the photo...

ANy input is welcome

Phobos 2 was a Russian space probe designed to explore Mars's moons Phobos and Deimos. It was launched on July 12, 1988, and entered orbit on January 29, 1989.


Sample image taken by the Phobos 2 probe. Enhanced image released by the IKI. Taken 430 km away with a resolution of 80/420 m.
Phobos 2 operated nominally throughout its cruise and Mars orbital insertion phases on January 29, 1989, gathering data on the Sun, interplanetary medium, Mars, and Phobos. Phobos 2 investigated Mars surface and atmosphere and returned 37 images of Phobos[1] with a resolution of up to 40 meters.

Shortly before the final phase of the mission, during which the spacecraft was to approach within 50 m of Phobos' surface and release two landers, one a mobile "hopper", the other a stationary platform, contact with Phobos 2 was lost. The mission ended when the spacecraft signal failed to be successfully reacquired on March 27, 1989. The cause of the failure was determined to be a malfunction of the on-board computer.[1]

How about a blurd, flying in front of the camera lens?

Hold on, maybe its a blug or blet.

Probably a carbon deposit 'foot print' down range from an impactor site on the surface…

Everytime I hear about phobos.. I think of Richard hogland..
Remember when this ass of a man was claiming it was an alien spaceship.. I don't even know how these people get any fame/attention at all..

I'd like to know the sources for your images. Could the first image be found in some Photos II archive?

It also looks like the other cigar shaped ufo's from other incidents. I think Occams razor applies given the time this occurred in and the technology available at the time.

The simplest explanation would be a space vessel of some-sort. Given the monolith on Phobos, Phobos supposedly being hollow / a space station and the probes proximity...

just my 2 cents.

That image appeared by way of a soviet air force pilot (I forget her name). It was released by her during a visit to the US (pacific northwest I think).

It's just an ice crystal shadow that just happens to look like some kind of flying craft, I'm sure the Military Industrial Complex controlled space programs would tell us if they ran into some ET tech, it's not like they could use/make any money with that kind of stuff..........

Maybe, as the shadow may be the shadow of Phobos on Mars surface.

Your 2 cents are appreciated Xcathdra
The reported cigar shaped UFO also came to first mind interestingly

Once again thank you ALL* for the data shared within the thread and your various inputs that somehow manage to signify the same Unidentified things

It could be a small meteoroid passing not far below the camera, the smudged oval shape being due to its fast velocity versus the exposure time.

You might look into the imaging system. Was it a full-screen simo capture, or a line-by-line scanning photometer?

What difference would that make for a fast-moving feature in the field of view?

Here's an old article of mine --
