Stickney Crater, the largest crater on the Martian moon Phobos, is named for Chloe Angeline Stickney Hall, mathematician and wife of astronomer Asaph Hall, who discovered both of Mars's moons in 1877. Over 9 km across, Stickney is nearly half the diameter of Phobos itself, so large that the impact that blasted out the crater likely came close to shattering the tiny moon. This enhanced-color image of Stickney and surroundings was taken by the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
