Solar eclipse on Mars

This is a speeded-up video taken by the Perseverance rover. Even though the sun is smaller in the Martian sky compared to what we see on Earth, the moon Phobos is so small (just an irregularly shaped piece of rock, probably captured from the asteroid belt by Mars' gravity) that it does not cover the sun.
