I'm please to see that the blog is up and running for the next sequence of fly-bys, as the ESA probe Mars Express passes close to Mars inner satellite Phobos. There will be sequence of ten fly-bys with the closest at 14:09 UT Sunday, 9 January, 2011. At this point Mars Express will pass just 108 km above the surface of Phobos.

It's taken a little while, but the images from the January 2011 Phobos fly-by are now on line. See link for details:

In her blog on the Planetary Society web site, Emily Lakdawalla has a very nice explanation of how the Mars Express High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) works and how it was used during the fly-by. See here for details.
