Moon Eclipse

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“When the Moon falls into the shadow of the Earth, the rays of the Sun are intercepted, or hid from her, and she then becomes eclipsed. when the Earth’s shadow covers a part of her face, as seen by us, she suffers only a partial eclipse, one part of her disc being obscured, while the other part reflects the Sun’s light. But when her whole surface is obscured by the Earth’s shadow, she then suffers a total eclipse, and of a duration proportionate to the distance she passes through the Earth’s shadow.” —Comstock, 1850
