New Delhi: After scripting history in space, India's Mars Orbiter Mission has now tweeted a video of the Red Planet's satellite Phobos.

On Tuesday, Mangalyaan sent a high quality moving picture of Phobos - the largest of the two natural satellites that orbit around Mars.

The video of Mars has been posted by ISRO on its official Twitter account.

Here is the video link sent by the India's Mars spacecraft.

 

Phobos along with Mars' another natural satellite Deimos was discovered by mankind in 1877.

According to NASA, Phobos, which is 27 by 22 by 18 km in diameter orbits the red planet three times a day.

Before this, ISRO had uploaded 3D image of Mars.

The Rs 450-crore project of India's Mars mission is the world's cheapest space mission. India became the first Asian country to reach Mars and the first in the world to successfully place a spacecraft into the Martian orbit in its very first attempt.
