Solar and Lunar Eclipse BY Jack riordan

First is a Solar Eclipse. A solar eclipse is a type of eclipse that occurs when the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth. This can happen only at new moon.

This happens every 18 month because the moon spins at an angle. They 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.

Next is a Lunar Eclipse. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth and the Earth casts a shadow over the moon. This happens also because the moon rotates at an angle.

This happens also because the moon rotates at an angle. Then again they 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.
