LETTERS: Roving skeptic

I see on CNN news on my TV that NASA observed a sunset on Mars.

I see on CNN news on my TV that NASA observed a sunset on Mars.

As always I am a bit skeptical about the claim, that scientist has observed a sunset on Mars. I think I can safely say that this is fiction.

If someone wants to observe a sunset on Mars, he must be on the far side of the planet and looking towards the sun. The Mars rover, who is running around here, somewhere on our planet Earth and not on Mars, cannot see a sunset.

Why do I think that the rover is roaming somewhere here on Earth? If a marmot is crawling around on Mars between some rocks and objects that appear or disappear in the pictures from rover, it is safe to assume the rover is here on earth.

If someone does not believe me, please make your own searches on the net, where you will find more anomalies, which could not be on Mars.
