Toxic Probe Filmed Through Telescope 2011

The failed Russian Mars probe Phobos-Grunt has been pictured moving across the sky by the Paris-based amateur astronomer Thierry Legault. The spacecraft is seen moving left to right in the video. The bulbous shape of its fuel tanks and its outstretched solar panels are easily discernable. It is expected to re-enter the atmosphere in the next 8-9 days and burn up.
