In Other News...

This is Phobos, the larger of the two moons that orbit Mars.

This looks like the sort of moon that I would design.

Phobos (according to Wikipedia) "is the embodiment of fear and horror in Greek mythology. He is the offspring of Ares and Aphrodite. He was known for accompanying Ares into battle along with his brother, Deimos,* the goddess Enyo, and his father’s attendants. Timor is his Roman equivalent."

As in that famous poetic line:

"Timor mortis conturbat me."

But lumpy little Phobos doesn't look like he could strike terror into anyone.


* The name, BTW, of the second, smaller moon orbiting Mars.
