Lunar and Solar Eclipses Check for Understanding 1. What is partially or totally blocked from our view during a solar eclipse? The Sun is blocked 2. During what phase of the moon does a solar eclipse occur? It has to be the new moon 3. Describe the view if you were to stand in the penumbra of a solar eclipse. From within the Moon's penumbra, a partial solar eclipse can be seen. Like any other opaque objects illuminated by a light source, the Moon and the Earth cast shadows into space as they block the sunlight that hits them. Each shadow has 2 different areas: the umbra and the penumbra 4. Describe the view if you were to stand in the umbra of a solar eclipse. If you are within the Moon's umbra and look into the direction of the Sun, you will see a total solar eclipse as the Moon blocks the all of the Sun. On its loop through space, the Moon will always casts an umbra. This means that somewhere in space, on the dark side of the Moon, a total solar eclipse is happening right now.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
