It's time to have a little fun at Pelablinka.

Tell me what's wrong at the NASA JPL website dedicated to the rovers. It's a question of scale.

In the night picture the Martian moons wouldn't give enough light to cast a shadow. The moons themselves are tiny, only about 10 miles across and would appear to be as bright as the International Space Station. <i></i>
