I'm pretty sure this is B.S. and the sky was taken from Earth and added.

 

Clear skies, Alan

Well I guess we're calling it the "big lie" and social media is following along with it. lol.gif Sure is fun though thinking about how it would be up there.

Given that they took this picture from there, it is not unreasonable to expect good night skies there.

I'm calling this BS because of the way the camera moves, pretty sure the cameras on any rover move up down, side to side and not along both axis simultaneously and, not nearly that fast.

I'm the fool who bought into it in the first place, go figure.... but one can only dream what's really up there.
