Today class we are going to be learning about Solar and Lunar eclipse. Lets start with a Solar eclipse. A solar eclipse occurs when the moon gets between Earth and the sun, and the moon casts a shadow over Earth. There are 2 shadows that cover parts of the earth when we have a Solar Eclipse. 1 shadow is called the umbra. If you are in the umbra you will not see any of the sun when the moon covers it. If you are in the penumbra you will not see the the sun covered all the way. Solar Eclipse only happen ever 2 years. That is because of the moons tilt.
That makes sense
Now for Lunar Eclipses. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind Earth and into its shadow. When the moon goes into the earths shadow you can not see any of the moon. Any questions?
