Confused about solar and lunar eclipses? Try this!

The new ELI today is 'What would an eclipse look like from the moon? From the moon, what would the Earth look like during a) a solar, b) a lunar eclipse on Earth?'

Asking pupils the deep questions in this activity will help the class to visualise the different positions of the Sun, Earth and moon during eclipses, and so consolidate their learning and clear up confusion.

Many more related activities can be found in our Earth in Space category on the website.
