      Moon phase: New
      Moon’s umbra (shadow) hits Earth’s surface and makes it look like the moon covers the sun
      Look at picture below
      Part of Sun seen: Corona
      Look at Corona using polarized lenses (or eyes will be severely damaged).
      Look at picture below
    • Lunar Eclipse
      Moon phase: Full
      Moon passes into Earth’s umbra (shadow)
      Look at picture below
      Part of Moon seen: All of the Moon  has a reddish color
      Look at picture below
