Eclipse

Definition of Eclipse

An eclipse is when one celestial body passes in front of another, blocking out the light from the sun. On Earth, the most frequent (and intriguing) eclipses are the solar eclipses and the lunar eclipses.

A solar eclipse is when the moon passes in front of the sun, casting a shadow over the Earth. A lunar eclipse is when the moon passes into the Earth’s shadow. There can be full eclipses and partial eclipses. Astrologers believe that eclipses have a profound influence on people's behaviour.
