NASA’s Perseverance rover was able to give us an “out of this world” experience by recording a Mar’s moon, Phobos, facing an eclipse. The eclipse lasted 40 seconds and was recorded using the rover’s Mastcam-Z camera system. 

Since the moon is quite small, it was a partial eclipse.

According to NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory,  it is the most zoomed-in observation of a solar eclipse from the Martian surface.

The Mars Perseverance mission is part of NASA’s Moon to Mars exploration, which also includes Artemis missions to the Moon.
