Default Martian Solar Eclipses Observed

When you have two moons you can have twice the fun!

However when your moon's disks are too small to cover the solar disk
they aren't quite as spectacular...

Yes it is cool. But I think lunar eclipses are nicer here on Earth. If
some day they have a picture of Phobos and Deimos eclipsing at the same
time, that would be very cool.

Also, on
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moons_of_Mars
there is a video made by Curiosity of Phobos eclipsing Deimos.
