Why you cannot see the moon when the Earth block the sun?

If the sun can't shine on the moon, then the moon isn't illuminated, and it's not visible. Think of it this way: You take a flashlight and a tennis ball into a dark room. You turn on the flashlight and point it at the tennis ball. You notice that you can see the tennis ball. Now your little brother, who has been hiding in the room all along, jumps up out of hiding, and sticks a basketball right between the flashlight and the tennis ball. The front of the basketball is now illuminated, but the tennis ball is dark. It is in the shadow of the basketball. As long as your brother stands there and holds the basketball in the way, the ants on the dark, 'night' side of the basketball may witness a stunning eclipse of the tennis ball.

How do you teach a beginner table tennis?

The key components of table tennis are your strokes. So, the best way to help a beginning player improve is to teach them proper strokes. This will give them a good foundation to build from whether they stick with the game or decide to come back to it later in life. Now, when playing a game in table tennis, the first thing you do is serve the ball or receive a serve. So, that would be the next thing to improve. In table tennis, a legal serve is tossed at least 6" and as near vertical as possible from the flat palm of the hand making sure not to impart any spin on the ball. The serve has to be from above the table and from behind the white end line of the table. Your opponent's serve may have any degree and variation of spin. So, teaching the player how to return topspin, underspin, sidespin, and no-spin services is very important to propel their table tennis game. Misreading the spin on a serve can cost them an important game in a match. Therefore, they need to see lots of varying serves to learn to return them. Finally, good balance and footwork will help a player drastically improve. Teach the beginning player to have a good ready stance and to lower their center of gravity. Having good balance and being able to move to the ball quickly to execute a proper stroke is very important. So, practice footwork drills that move the player side to side and back and forth from the table. Teaching a beginner these key points will give them an excellent base to build their game from.
