It doesn't appear to be the same size
The angular size of the Sun and the Moon are exactly the same from the Earth.
Because the Sun is 4000 x further away from us than the Moon but also 4000 x larger in diameter.
Because the Sun is 400 x further away from us than the Moon but also 400 x larger in diameter.
The Moons orbital plane is tilted 5 degrees from the plane of the Ecliptic
Because the elliptical orbit of the Moon places it at different distances
Because we have lunar ones instead
The Moons orbital plane is different to the plan of the Ecliptic
Time to complete one full rotation
Full Cycle of phases
An eclipsed Moon
A full moon in opposition
When you flash your bum at strangers passing
Second full moon during a Calendar Month
Moonshine - light reflected from rest of Moon
Something else entirely
Earthshine - light reflected from Earth
The earth is between the moon and the sun
Occurs at full moon
Light from the Moons reflection obscured if observer is in the umbra.
Occurs at new moon
The Moon passes directly in front of the Sun
Light from the Sun’s photosphere obscured if observer is in the umbra
the rugged lunar limb topography allows beads of sunlight to shine through in some places, and not in others
At the beginning and end of totality
a feature of total solar eclipses.
From a Thai sex shop
Small bright spots of sunlight caused by Sun’s rays shining through valley’s on the Moon
Diamond ring effect
None of the above
Moon only partly obscures light from the Sun. i.e. Earth’s surface lies in penumbra
Earth only partly obscures light from the Sun. i.e. Earth’s surface lies in penumbra
When Earth passes between Sun and Moon.
Moon given bluish greeny glow.
When moon passes between Earth and Sun
Moon given reddish glow
A Partial Solar Eclipse
A Total Solar Eclipse
A lunar eclipse because it is visible from most of the Earth’s Night Side.
Because “blues bend best.”
Light from the Sun is refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere
Clockwise when observed looking down on the North Pole.
From West to East
From East to West
Anticlockwise when observed looking down on the North Pole.
The actual time it takes for Earth to spin 360 degrees on its axis
The time taken for successive crossings for a given star across the observer’s meridian
Time for observers latitude to line up again with the Sun
It is 23h 56 min and 4.1 seconds
24 Hours exactly
The time taken for successive crossings of the Sun across the Observer’s Meridian
It must rotate for an extra 4 minutes to allow the Sun to return to the same position in the sky
This is exactly 24 h
An extra 4 minutes is needed because the Earth has moved slightly in Its orbit around the Sun
