Mars and It's Moons

MorBius
Mars (IPA: /ˈmɑrz/) is the fourth planet from the Sun in the Solar System. The planet is named after Mars, the Roman god of war. It is also referred to as the "Red Planet" because of its reddish appearance as seen from Earth. Circuling Mars are its two small moons, Phobos and Deimos. These are examples of what are called minor satellites: small chunks of rock in orbit around planets as compared with large satellites like the Earth's Moon. As the adjacent images show, they are very irregular in shape. Phobos is 27 km long in its longest dimension and Deimos is 15 km long in its longest dimension Use the Layer Manager to display the orbital paths and descriptions for the moons.
