  • Good Morning, girls! Do you know what today is?
  • Yes!! An Eclipse!
  • Wait... what's an eclipse?
  • Here's the answer to your question...
  • An eclipse is The partial or total blocking of one object in space by another.
  • Oh... So then what is a Lunar Eclipse?
  • However, a Lunar eclipse is when The blocking of sunlight to the moon that occurs when Earth is directly between the sun and the moon.
  • Good question. There are 2 eclipses. Lunar and Solar Eclipses.
  • Oh, I understand. 
  • Look!! The lunar eclipse is in view right now!
  • Wow! We have such a fantastic view of it.... why is that?
  • It is because we were standing in the umbra.
  • There is an umbra and a penumbra. An umbra is the darkest part of a shadow. A penumbra is the part of shadow surrounding the darkest part. 
  • What is an umbra?
  • One more thing.. A partial lunar eclipse is when the moon only partially passes through the umbra, while the total lunar is when the moon fully passes through.
  • No problem.
  • Okay, thank you so much for the help today!
