    • Because Mercury and Venus are sunward of the Earth they, like the Moon during a solar eclipse, may pass across the face of the Sun.
    • On Earth, solar eclipses happen when the Moon covers the Sun.
    • This absorption spectrum can be detected at any time; its intensity swamps any other solar light except in a total solar eclipse.
    • We get a partial solar eclipse when the Moon's path almost intersects the ecliptic.
    • The current 38-year hiatus in total solar eclipses for the continental United States is unusual in the opposite sense, being a rather greater interval than might be expected for such a large target.
    • With the face of the Sun blocked by the Moon during a solar eclipse, the corona shines with the brightness of a full Moon.
    • For generations astronomers have traveled to exotic locations to observe total solar eclipses because total solar eclipses are such rare events.
    • Apparently there is often a crash in prices within a few days of a lunar eclipse and within six weeks of a solar eclipse.
    • In the same way as solar eclipses allow the Sun's corona to be studied, so lunar occultations enable astronomers to investigate the distant light sources being occulted.
    • All the lunar ecliptic limits are substantially lower than the solar values, and that is why solar eclipses outnumber lunar eclipses by about three to two.
    • For potential conquerors or colonists the problem, as such, was that total solar eclipses are so infrequent that it is most unlikely that a track will pass through any region of interest where they are trying to unseat the natives.
    • Camera obscura technology has been used in astronomy to study solar eclipses and in spy work to make surreptitious surveillance cameras.
    • And unlike the partial phases of solar eclipses, lunar eclipses of course are completely safe to watch without using any filters.
    • The foliage of a tree provides a set of natural pinhole cameras, producing crescent images during the partial phase of a solar eclipse.
    • There are usually two or three full lunar eclipses a year, making them rarer than solar eclipses.
    • The last total eclipse, solar eclipse in Antarctica, was just over a century ago.
    • Why are solar eclipses less common than lunar eclipses?
    • During a solar eclipse the Moon moves across the Sun, blocking its light and casting a shadow onto the Earth.
    • Well-prepared eclipse enthusiasts await the total solar eclipse in Spain in 1900.
    • To provide an example of the sort of pattern that results, in Figure 3-1 all the solar eclipses that have taken place, or are due to take place, between 1901 and 2100 are plotted.
