The moons orbit is tilted 5 0 compared to Earths orbit WHY DONT WE SEE SOLAR AND LUNAR ECLIPSES EVERY MONTH?
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SOLAR AND LUNAR ECLIPSE Solar Sun is blocked Happens during the day Moons in the middle Happens during a new moon Covers only a small area so few see it Lunar Moon is in the shadow Happens at night Earths in the middle Happens during a full moon Can be seen by everyone that can see the moon
Daytime The NEW moon is slowly moving in front of the sun and blocks the sun from view for a few minutes IMAGINE YOU ARE AT A PLACE ON EARTH THAT IS EXPERIENCING A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE. IS IT DAYTIME OR NIGHTTIME? DESCRIBE THE EVENT YOU ARE SEEING.
Nighttime The full moon is moving across the sky and moves into the Earths shadow blocking it from view. IMAGINE YOU ARE AT A PLACE ON EARTH THAT IS EXPERIENCING A TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE. IS IT DAYTIME OR NIGHTTIME? DESCRIBE THE EVENT YOU ARE SEEING
