Video: Watch two moons pass overhead in Mars night sky

This video was stitched together from stills taken by the camera on the Curiosity Rover, looking up into the Martian sky from the planet’s surface. It shows Mars’ larger moon, Phobos, passing in front of Deimos, its smaller moon.

Cool, right?
