Sun's Partial Eclipse on Mars


Sun‘s partial eclipse on Mars was created by moon Phobos transiting the Sun.

NASA’s Perseverance rover snapped photos of one of Mars’ moons, Phobos (fear in Greek) crossing in front of the Sun, creating a partial eclipse.

Perseverance, stationed in Mars’ Jezero Crater, captured 68 images of Phobos, the planet’s biggest moon, passing in front of the Sun.

The images, taken by engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, show Phobos’ unique, potato-like shape as it casts a shadow on the Sun’s surface.
