Eclipses By: PArker Sheddan

An eclipse can either be the moon blocking out the sunlight or the moon going behind the Earth and the Earth cast a shadow on the moon making it look red.
A Lunar Eclipse happens when the moon goes behind the Earth and the Earth casts a shadow on the moon. The shadow that the Earth casts makes the Moon look red. This can only happen during a full moon.
A Solar Eclipse is when the moon is the closest to the Earth as it can get but this doesn't happen very often. When this does happen the moon blocks out the sun so you can only see a little bit of the outside of the sun

Umbra and Penumbra

Penumbra: the partially shaded outer region of the shadow cast by an opaque object.

Umbra: 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
