Eclipses and tides

  1. 1. 2006 Total Solar EclipseA composite image reveals subtle structurein the Suns corona.
  2. 2. Total Lunar Eclipse of 2004 Oct 27-28Beginning (right), middle (center) and end(left) of totality
  3. 3.  BUT SOMETIMES ,THERE ARE ECLIPSES THAT THE MOON CAN STILL BE SEEN. THEY ARE CALLED: PARTIAL ECLIPSE.
  4. 4.  IN ONE CALENDAR YEAR, THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ECLIPSES IS 4 SOLAR AND 3 LUNAR ECLIPSES. THE LONGEST DURATION FOR A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE IS 7.5 MINUTES. ONLY PARTIAL SOLAR ECLIPSE CAN BE OBSERBED FROM THE NORTH AND SOUTH POLES.
  5. 5.  Local animals and birds often prepare for sleep or behave confusedly during a total solar eclipse. Local temperatures often drop 20 degrees or more near totality. During the five thousand year period 2000 BCE to 3000 CE, planet Earth experiences 11,898 solar eclipses.
  6. 6.  THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT ECLIPSES HAVE ANY PHYSICAL EFFECT ON HUMANS. HOWEVER, ECLIPSES HAS ALWAYS BEEN CAPABLE OF PRODUCING PROFOUND PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS.
  7. 7.  No. Whenever there are large moons, there can be eclipses. Space probes routinely photograph solar eclipses on Jupiter, when one of the Jovian moons casts its shadow on the giant planet. But since there is almost certainly no intelligent life on Jupiter (and the atmosphere would be too thick to see anything anyway) there is nobody there to appreciate the sight. If the moon is too small, it cannot cause eclipses. The moons of Mars, Phobos and Deimos, are very small, and do not cast a shadow on Mars even when the moon comes between the Sun and Mars.
  8. 8.  In many places there are two high tides and two low tides in each twenty-four hours, while in others there may be only one high and one low tides, around the globe are complicated.
  9. 9.  Where there is a great difference between the high and the low tides, the movement of the water can be used as a source of electric power. Adam or barrier may be built across a tidal mouth of a river. Sliding gates are opened in the barrier to allow the tide in, then closed at high tide.
  10. 10.  HOPE YOU ENJOYED
  11. 11.  Which of the following is/are true about eclipses? a) involve two objects and the sun b) named after the object that is obscured c) occur when one object casts a shadow onto another object d) all of the above
  12. 12.  LETTER D  ALL OF THE ABOVE
  13. 13.  What happens more often, solar or lunar eclipses? a) SOLAR ECLIPSE b) LUNAR ECLIPSE
  14. 14.  LETTER A  SOLAR ECLIPSE
  15. 15.  HOW DOES A SOLAR ECLIPSE OCCUR? a) IF THE EARTH COVERS THE MOON b) IF THE MOON GIVES A SHADOW THAT IS SEEN ON EARTH c) IF AN ALIEN LANDS IT’S UFO ON THE MOON
  16. 16.  LETTER B  IF THE MOON GIVES A SHADOW THAT IS SEEN ON EARTH
  17. 17.  WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETTWEEN SOLAR ECLIPSE AND LUNAR ECLIPSE?
  18. 18.  A lunar eclipse is an eclipse of the Moon rather than the Sun. It happens when the Moon passes through Earths shadow. This is only possible when the Moon is in the Full Moon phase. While, a solar eclipse is an eclipse of the Sun. It happens when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. This is only possible when the Moon is in the New Moon phase.
