Astronomy Science Image by NASA ~ October 03 1995 - Image Clarification: Mars has two little moons, Phobos and Deimos. Presented above is Deimos, the littlest moon of Mars. Truth be told, Deimos is the littlest known moon in the Solar System measuring just 9 miles over. The little Martian moons were found in 1877 by Asaph Hall, an American cosmologist working at the US Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. The presence of two Martian moons was anticipated around 1610 by Johannes Kepler, the stargazer who determined the laws of planetary movement. For this situation, Kepler's expectation was not taking into account investigative standards, but rather his compositions and thoughts were influential to the point that the two Martian moons are examined in works of fiction, for example, Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", composed in 1726, more than 150 years before their real disclosure.
