Since before the dawn of humanity, the Moon has been Earth's companion. Its features and phases fascinate us. It lights our way at night and sometimes appears during the day. It occasionally hides in the shadow of the Earth; and for brief moments it even upstages the Sun!

See how Solar and Lunar eclipses happen, hear the mythology surrounding eclipses, and learn everything you need to know to safely witness these astronomical events!

Join us as we explore Eclipses and Phases of the Moon!
