An eclipse occurs when one celestial object passes directly between the sun and another celestial object and casts a shadow on that second object.


This is an eclipse. A lunar eclipse is when the Moon passes through the shadow of the Earth. A solar eclipse is the Earth passing through the shadow of the Moon.


Destructive interference takes place. Constructive interference occurs when the trough of one wave passes through the crest of another wave


It is bent; refraction is what occurs as Light passes through the boundary of two different transparent substances.


A partial lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon partly passes through the Earth's umbra. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon fully passes through the Earth's umbra. When the Moon only passes through the penumbra, there is only a subtle darkening of its surface. The umbra and the penumbra are parts of the Earth's shadow.


A lunar eclipse occurs when the full moon passes through the Earth's shadow.


That is called an eclipse. A Solar eclipse is when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. A lunar eclipse is when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon.


An accultation is another word for an occultation, an astronomical event in which one celestial object is hidden by another which passes between it and the observer.


Answer #1:An eclipse is when one celestial body passes between another celestial bodyand the Sun, cutting off some or all of its light.A "solar eclipse" occurs when the Moon passes between the Earth and the Sun.A "lunar eclipse" occurs when the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon.In fact, the Sun need not be involved. All that is required is for one celestial bodyto obscure the light from another.So, one body can pass between another and the observer or between a bodyand the source of light.For example, an "eclipsing binary" is a system of two stars where one can pass infront of the other, as seen from Earth.================================Answer #1B:An eclipse is an occasion or a process, in which one celestial body moves intothe shadow of another one. A solar eclipse occurs when the Earth crosses themoon's shadow, and the view of the sun is completely or partly cut off fromsome people on Earth for some period of time. A lunar eclipse occurs when themoon crosses the Earth's shadow, and the people on the night side of Earth losesome or all sight of the moon for some period of time.


I can not find any reference to a Meridian in the Solar System. In astronomy, there is the Earth's meridian. That's a "great circle" on the "celestial sphere". It passes through the "celestial poles" and also through the "zenith" at the observer's location.


Refraction occurs when light passes from one material to another, where it travels faster through one material than through the other. For instance, when it passes through water or glass, it slows down. If it passes through at an angle, then that angle is increased or decreased depending on the circumstances. Also, the different frequencies of light (colors) can be separated out, making a rainbow effect.

More specifically, a total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the umbra, the darker part of the shadow.


According to my Professor, yes, the celestial equator always passes directly overhead.



When the crest, or high point, of one wave passes through the crest of another wave, both of the crests' heights are added into one larger crest. After they pass, each crest becomes its original height that they were before the incident. This phenomena called constructive interference. This also occurs when the trough, or low point, of a wave passes through the trough of another. Now, when the crest of one wave passes through the trough of another, the height and depth of each is added (think of the trough's depth as a negative number) and the resulting amplitude (the distance from the middle of the wave) is "constructed". And once again, after the crest and trough finish passing each other, both crest and trough become their original amplitude that they were before the incident. This phenomena is called destructive interference.


A penumbral lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes through the Earth's penumbra.

An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when one celestial object moves into the shadow of another.A Solar eclipse is when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun. Total solar eclipse occurs when the Earth intersects the umbra portion of the Moon's shadow. When the umbra does not reach the surface of the Earth, the Sun is only partially occluded, resulting in an annular eclipse. Partial solar eclipses occur when the viewer is inside the penumbra.See link for a pictorial representation.A Lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes through the Earth's shadow. Since this occurs only when the Moon is on the far side of the Earth from the Sun, lunar eclipses only occur when there is a full moon.See link for a pictorial representation.
