Solar Eclipses Happen on Mars too

    If you're watching the solar eclipse in the UK, enjoy and clear skies!

    Solar eclipses also happen on Mars. The Curiosity rover captured a few years ago Phobos going across the Sun, but It's not big enough or close enough to Mars to block out all of the solar disk. You can see the images here.

    Wow, that's cool, both that that happens, and that we now have photos of it. Something I never would have thought about.

    What an age we live in. 😃
