Mars Curiosity rover asteroid image

The Mast Camera on NASA's Mars rover Curiosity captured an image of two asteroids, Ceres and Vesta -- the first image of any asteroid taken from the Martian surface. The image also features Deimos, one of the Red Planet's two moons, which may have been an asteroid before being pulled into orbit around Mars. Separately, the camera captured images of Jupiter, Saturn and Mars' other moon, Phobos.
