I think this is a fake picture of Phobos from mars....

It's an eclipse... but not as we know it: Curiosity rover captures amazing photograph of Martian moon moving across the face of the sun

The sight of a solar eclipse is a reasonably common one - we have all seen many pictures of the moon passing between the Earth and the sun.

But this image is strikingly different to most pictures of an eclipse - because it was taken on Mars.

The object appearing to take a 'bite' out of the sun's light is not our moon, but Phobos, one of the two moons orbiting Mars.

Eclipse: This picture was taken from the surface of Mars by the Curiosity rover and shows the moon Phobos moving across the face of the sun
