    • Annular Eclipse – WHY?
    • Sometimes, the Moon is too small to cover the entire Sun's disk. The Moon's orbit around Earth is not perfectly round but is oval or elliptical in shape.
  • 16. Solar Eclipse
    • When the Moon is on the near side of its orbit, the Moon appears larger than the Sun. If an eclipse occurs at that time, it will be a total eclipse.
    • If an eclipse occurs while the Moon is on the far side of its orbit, the Moon appears smaller than the Sun and can't completely cover it.
