Phobos enters eclipse, sol 393
Sixteen images captured at about 9:50 p.m. local time on sol 393 (September 14, 2013) watch Phobos pass into Mars' shadow, entering eclipse. Although in shadow, Phobos is still faintly lit by Mars twilight.

Images from sol 393 have been processed to approximately match brightness (exposure varied throughout the observation). Hot pixels have been painted out.

Here are some intermediate versions. Original photos, animated but unprocessed:
