People keep reblogging this comparison, noting that the top photo (allegedly taken by the Curiosity rover currently on Mars) is really similar to the twin suns of Tatooine.
Well, it’s fake, kids. Dramatically so. It’s pretty obvious when you consider that THERE AREN’T TWO SUNS IN OUR SOLAR SYSTEM. Also: the positioning, shades, and colors of the two suns in both photos are identical — they’re just a bit more saturated and stretched out horizontally to be more circular in the Mars photo.
So, someone clearly just copied and pasted the screenshot from Star Wars into a photo from the Martian surface. The Martian surface photo used is probably this one:
And that was taken by the Spirit rover in 2005 (notice the landscape and horizon details in it are identical to the top “twin sun” photo above, meaning either Mars had two suns for like 12 hours in 2005 and the rover documented both in that span or this is nonsense).
Also: this image is not from Curiosity because Curiosity has not taken any photos of any sunrise/sunset on Mars. Derr. If it had, don’t you think this photo or any similar ones would’ve been all over the news rather than just Tumblr?
Note: that legitimate NASA Martian sunset photo above was released on May 19, 2005. The same day on which this movie was released. The final shot of that movie?
