A photograph taken by a graphic artist shows the threat that planets from the solar system can represent to Earth.
Phobos, the largest moon of Mars, was imagined by graphic artist Ludovic Celle
over the French city of Grenoble, to highlight the size of the solar system by comparing it to large terrestrial landscape.

Grenoble, city who is completely covered by the shadow of Phobos, is a medium sized city with over 150,000 inhabitants.
Although Phobos, whose name means "fear" is one of the smallest moons orbiting planets in the Solar System, it's sufficient to destroy all life on Earth in case of an impact. Fortunately for us, this is almost impossible.
The project of Ludovic Celle
was designed to show the dimensions of the Red Planet and its satellites.
See below, in the image gallery, the fearsome size of Phobos!
