I don't think so ,for what is Moonlight essential?The small mass of martians moons that's a problem.Many sea creatures bases their life on moon cycles,maybe must think of it once we have a ocean on mars.And if you will have same Mohammedan population there will be useful since they use the lunar calendar,LOL
Don't forget the Jews.. they also use the moon calendar..............
What is the relevance of any of this? A, there's no such thing as moon light, it's simply sun light reflected off the moon, and B it's not essential to life at all. C, while the moons gravitational pull does create the tides and may be important to some sea life there are no sea's on Mar's. Sorry I just cant see the point in this question.
The key point here is that the Earth and Luna (our moon) are freaks of the Solar System in that the Moon is so large in relation to the Earth. Mars has two tiny moons that rotate in opposite directions, so not only do they have less impact on the planet, but they tend to cancel each other out. From the surface of Mars Phobos and Deimos are just fat stars. See http://www.nasa.gov/exploration/whyweexplore/Why_We_27.html
Scratch that part about counter-rotation. I was recently researching the moons of Jupiter and got the information scrambled in my head, but the size issue is correct.
Not sure how much effect the moon would have, might depend on when you were born! You'll have to look into Astrology for most of that info. Also Moon light might be artifical, like gravity!
