Mars’ death spiral moon captured in beautiful eclipse video

NASA’s Perseverance rover captured the clearest images ever seen of a solar eclipse on Mars, and the results are out of this world.

The rover took ethereal video of Mars’ potato-shaped moon Phobos moving in front of the sun on April 2. During the eclipse, Phobos cast its ragged shadow on the Martian surface, looking almost like the pupil of a giant eyeball rolling in its orbit.
