Curiosity Rover Makes GIF of Phobos Passing Deimos, Wins the Internet

It's like... Curiosity gets us, you know? Like, really gets us.

Lunar Mars

Earlier this month Curiosity got a unique view of two Martian moons passing each other. It witnessed Phobos passing Deimos, and NASA put out a nice video showing the event, but if the Internet loves anything more than videos it’s GIFs, so they made one. I wonder what we’ll use it in response to on Reddit.

Take a look:

Phobos Deimos

We learned about GIF from NASA’s own Bobak Ferdowsi who is totally our best friend. (He said so on Twitter.)

He’s right. This really could use some cats.
