Solar & Lunar Eclipses by The gavin adams society

A solar eclipse is an eclipse in which the sun is obscured by the moon. One solar eclipse will be seen by the U.S.A. on August 21, 2017. There are 4 types of solar eclipses: total, annular, hybrid, & partial. These types of eclipses due to the pattern of these natural phenomenons.
A lunar eclipse is when the moon passes directly behind Earth into its umbra (shadow). The next lunar eclipse is Febuary 11, 2017. There are 3 types of lunar eclipses: penumbral, central lunar, & partial lunar. During a total lunar eclipse, the moon is known as a "Blood Moon."
An umbra is the fully shaded inner region of a shadow cast by an opaque object, especially the area on the earth or moon experiencing the total phase of an eclipse.
A penumbra is the partially shaded outer region of the shadow cast by an opaque object. This happens during a partial eclipse.
