curl vs wget to download stemcells

Quintessence Anx

I am experiencing something a bit unexpected when I try to download the AWS
stemcells with wget and curl.

I'm trying to download the latest version, so for curl I enter:

curl -L -J -O

For wget I enter:

wget --content-disposition --no-check-certificate

For curl I get a file named:

For wget I get a file named:

In both cases the file is about 6.2KB, so it looks like I am actually
getting the *light* stemcell both times, even though that's not the URL I'm

Is this behavior expected? How would I use curl/wget to download the full
stemcell since there's no separate URL?
