Found this colored photo of Phobos, Mars's moon, on the NASA site and thought it was interesting, the white especially. Looks like an icy interior, like maybe Phobos is a huge dust covered comet?



The High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took two images of the larger of Mars' two moons, Phobos, within 10 minutes of each other on March 23, 2008. This is the second, taken from a distance of about 5,800 kilometers (about 3,600 miles). It is presented in color by combining data from the camera's blue-green, red, and near-infrared channels.



Note: The pic below is NOT the Hi-Res pic, it's just a smaller JPG. The Hi-Res pic is in TIF format and is located here: www.nasa.gov...

So that's where all of Mars' water went??

I like the post sos37. The image is a good one, which illustrates the validity of such a claim.

Good Catch!!!
