I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Astronomy Tuesday

When I was lucky enough to see the total eclipse in 2017, one of the things I marveled at was the great cosmic coincidence where our moon and the sun appear to be the same size from Earth, making eclipses possible.

This is not the case on Mars, where the distinctively potato-shaped Phobos passing in front of the sun is more like a transit than an eclipse. And Perseverance was there to record it for us.
