Phobos (systematic designation: Mars I) is the innermost and larger of the two natural satellites of Mars, the other being Deimos. Both moons were discovered in 1877 by American astronomer Asaph Hall.
Phobos is a small, irregularly shaped object with a mean radius of 11 km (7 mi), and is seven times larger than the outer moon, Deimos. Phobos is named after the Greek god, Phobos, a son of Ares (Mars) and Aphrodite (Venus) is the personification of Horror. The name "Phobos" is pronounced /ˈfoʊbəs/ foh-bəs or /ˈfoʊbɒs/ foh-bos, or like the Greek Φόβος.
