Ok next question.. What is causing that in the pic?
Was wondering that myself.
The stars seem to be trailed a bit so maybe a longish exposure captured the movement of Phobos.
Somebody skilled in the use of software such as Starry Night Pro could recreate the scene.
Of course, being a conspiracy site, I should say its an insect.
Edit - looking at the other thumbnail images on the page you linked to
there is certainly a bright object moving downward in the sky.
Images at 07:35, 07:36, 07:37 show (probably) Phobos moving progressively downward past a bright star on the left of the image. That star is probably
the one in the top left of the larger images you showed at 07:44 and 07:45 as the moon continues to move downward.
