Storyboard Text

  • Man its' cold up here... Oh, hello. I see your here to learn about the solar and lunar eclipses. Let's get back to the ship, and then I'll explain
  • Solar eclipses happen when the moons shadow blocks out the sun's light, and lunar eclipses happen when the moon is covered up by the earths shadow
  • Ah, that's better. Moving on, solar and lunar eclipses happen when one objects shadow covers up another object.
  • Like I said earlier, the solar eclipse happens when the moon blocks out the suns light for the earth. When there is a new moon, and the moon's umbra (shadow) covers the earth, it appears that the sun is completely gone.

  • The lunar eclipse happens when the the moon crosses into the earth's shadow. The moon then appears bright red. This is because the red light waves in earth's atmosphere reflect off the moon.
  • So, ya, that's everything about solar and lunar eclipses
  • OH NO!!! The ship's out of fuel again. How am I going to get back to earth now
