When Sun, Earth
and moon align
…partially
Everywhere where
the moon is visible
at the moment
of eclipse
First occurrence:
Before memory
of humankind
A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth is between
the Sun and the Moon and
the shadow of the Earth
covers the moon  temporarily.

During a partial eclipse, the shadow of the Earth
never fully covers the Moon because the Earth
is not perfectly between Sun and Moon.
This results in an eclipse where we always see
a little bit of a moon sickle.

When Sun, Earth and Moon are
perfectly aligned,
the shadow of the Earth
does perfectly cover the Moon.

This we call this a Total Lunar Eclipse.
