  • 2. Eclipses
    • Eclipses happen when one planetary body passes into the shadow of another.
    • Eclipse is a Greek word that means “cease to exist”.
  • 3.
    • The two most common kinds of eclipses are:
    • 1. A Solar Eclipse – when the sun is blocked by the moon.
    • The moon’s shadow falls on the Earth and it seems to us that the sun ceases to exist momentarily…
    • … at least for the people under the black shadow.
  • 4.
    • 2. Lunar Eclipse – when the moon is blocked by the Earth’s shadow.
    • (The moon ceases to exist…for a few moments)
  • 5.
    • During a solar eclipse, you can see the moon slowly move between the Sun and the Earth…
    • … blocking the sun’s rays for us here on Earth…
