Because the Sun is 4000 x further away from us than the Moon but also 4000 x larger in diameter.
The angular size of the Sun and the Moon are exactly the same from the Earth.
It doesn't appear to be the same size
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 different to the plan 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 tilted 5 degrees from the plane of the Ecliptic
Time to complete one full rotation
Full Cycle of phases
Second full moon during a Calendar Month
A full moon in opposition
When you flash your bum at strangers passing
An eclipsed Moon
Moonshine - light reflected from rest of Moon
Earthshine - light reflected from Earth
Something else entirely
The earth is between the moon and the sun
Occurs at new moon
The Moon passes directly in front of the Sun
Light from the Moons reflection obscured if observer is in the umbra.
Occurs at full moon
Light from the Sun’s photosphere obscured if observer is in the umbra

Small bright spots of sunlight caused by Sun’s rays shining through valley’s on the Moon
Diamond ring effect
a feature of total solar eclipses.
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
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 moon passes between Earth and Sun
Moon given bluish greeny glow.
Moon given reddish glow
When Earth passes between Sun and Moon.
A Partial Solar Eclipse
A lunar eclipse because it is visible from most of the Earth’s Night Side.
A Total Solar Eclipse
Because “blues bend best.”
Light from the Sun is refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere
From East to West
Anticlockwise when observed looking down on the North Pole.
Clockwise when observed looking down on the North Pole.
From West to East
The time taken for successive crossings for a given star across the observer’s meridian
24 Hours exactly
Time for observers latitude to line up again with the Sun
It is 23h 56 min and 4.1 seconds
The actual time it takes for Earth to spin 360 degrees on its axis
An extra 4 minutes is needed because the Earth has moved slightly in Its orbit around the Sun
This is exactly 24 h
It must rotate for an extra 4 minutes to allow the Sun to return to the same position in the sky
The time taken for successive crossings of the Sun across the Observer’s Meridian
