Solar and Lunar Eclipses
This webpage is dedicated to observing solar and lunar eclipses.
As residents of planet Earth we are lucky sun and moon are seemingly of equal size.
When the moon moves between the earth and the sun we have a change of observing a solar eclipse.
If the moon however is a little bit smaller as the sun a small fraction of the sun remains visible, an annular solar eclipse!
Considering eclipses of the moon things are easier. As observed from the moon the Earth is seemingly much larger as the sun.
Eclipses of the moon will be more often as eclipses of the sun.
