Eclipse Information Page

Warning!A word of warning: Never view the sun directly with the naked eye or with any optical device, such as binoculars or a telescope! This can cause permanent eye damage or blindness. Additionally, there are no pain sensors back there so you won't even know it's happening! There are safe ways to view the sun.

The plane of the Moon's orbit around the Earth is tilted slightly with respect to the plane of the Earth's orbit around the Sun. These two planes intersect along a line called the line of nodes. A solar eclipse happens only when both the Sun and the Moon are on or very near the line of nodes. Hence, a solar eclipse in not a common event and, in particular, does not occur every month when the Moon is new. In a sense, a total solar eclipse is the newest possible new Moon!

When the line of nodes (line AB) is not directed towards the Sun, an eclipse is not possible:

But, when the line of nodes is oriented towards the Sun, an eclipse is possible:

It might be interesting to study a particular Saros cycle. Each eclipse in the cycle follows 18 years 11.3 days after the last in the cycle. Here is a list of a few of the eclipses in Saros cycle 136:
