I ask you Mike, what do you think of the correlation between the "wipe-out" of the Phobos 2 probe, and your hypothesis here? Is it possible that
both of these incidents happened around the same time?
Was wondering what are your thoughts on this?
Well, KRIS, here is an image of the cylindrical object photographed by Phobos II:
and another one...

Phobos II operated nominally throughout its cruise and Mars orbital insertion phases. However, during the final phase of the mission, when 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 II was suddenly lost. The mission ended when the spacecraft signal failed to be successfully reacquired on 27 March 1989.
Where the connection between the 'destruction' of the space craft Phobos II is concerned, the mystery object near the Moon and the hypothesis here,
I don't think there is one. Contact with the Mars Observer was lost on August 21, 1993
, whereas Phobos II was lost on 27th March 1989
over four years earlier.
