Hello all

I saw these new pics of the martian sky. sol 393 and I wonder if this is Ison from mars?

I'm not sure when they are going to be trying to take pics of it, but these are pretty coo if it is Ison

Not until about October 1st.
The day or two after that should have NASA releasing some pictures, if any were able to be taken.

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.

I've got an old copy of Stellarium, and perhaps the elements arent up to date because I cant quite get it to fit the photos, but I think this is whats going on...

The big blob is indeed Phobos, but you got Deimos and Jupiter wrong way around: www.unmannedspaceflight.com...



Just to clarify, Phobos looks like this because of the long exposure. Phobos moves pretty fast in the martian sky.
