Solar & Lunar Eclipses By : Jaiden Earles

Today on this adobe spark presentation we will be talking about Solar and Lunar eclipses. But first we will talk about the phases of the moon.
The phases of the moon. 1. New moon 2. Waxing Crescent 3. First Quarter 4. Waxing Gibbous 5. Full Moon 6. Waning Gibbous 7. Third Quarter 8. Waning Crescent. Then the cycle repeats! But there is also the blood moon, the blue moon, and the harvest moon.
Facts about a solar eclipse. Depending on the geometry of the Sun, Moon, and Earth, there can be between 2 and 5 solar eclipses each year. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon completely obscures Sun so only the solar corona is showing. A total solar eclipse can happen once every 1-2 years. Looking at a solar eclipse can blind you. Solar eclipses do not happen every month because the Earth's orbit around the sun is not in the same plane as the Moon's orbit around the Earth.
Facts about a Lunar Eclipse. Lunar eclipses only occur during a full moon. There are three different types of a lunar eclipse. They are the total, partial and penumbral. Lunar eclpises do not happen every month because the Earth's orbit around the sun is not in the same plane as the Moon's orbit around the Earth.
