    Hi Ashley,

    The rovers on Mars have observed the moons of Mars pass in front of the Sun. However, due to the differences in the angular sizes of the Sun and Mars' moons, these are not total eclipses like we often see on Earth. They are more like annular or ring eclipses. You can see pictures of what this looks like here
