An eclipse is an astronomical event. It is a process that develops slowly across time when one object in the sky moves into the shadow of another such object. The term eclipse is most often used to describe a solar eclipse, when the Moon’s shadow crosses the Earth’s surface, or a lunar eclipse, when the Moon moves into the shadow of Earth.
See the fact file below for more information about eclipses or alternatively download our comprehensive worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
- A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes behind the earth so that the earth blocks the sun’s rays from striking the moon.
- A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and the Moon fully or partially covers the Sun as viewed from some locations on Earth.
- A Solar eclipse always occurs two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse.
- Lunar eclipses can only occur during a full moon. Solar eclipses can only occur during a new moon.
- Eclipses very often occur in threes, alternating lunar, solar and lunar.
- The maximum time a lunar eclipse can last is 3 hours and 40 minutes. The maximum time for a total solar eclipse is 7 minutes and 40 seconds.
- Lunar eclipses can occur up to 3 times a year. Solar eclipses can occur at least 2 and no more than 5 times a year.
- Lunar eclipses are visible over an entire hemisphere. Solar eclipses are visible in a narrow path a maximum of 167 miles wide.
- The cycle of eclipses repeats every 18.6 years called the saros.
- The eclipse shadow moves at 2,000 mph at the Earth’s poles and 1,000 mph at the Earth’s equator. 心灵家园女主天地小说_女主天地心灵社区家园_sm 心灵家园 ,骚麦小莫歌曲完整_烧麦_八连杀 乐正小说平台
