Eclipses

Solar and lunar eclipses are spectacular sights. The shadow of Earth sweeping across the Moon, illuminating its grey surface in a blood red is breathtaking. But nothing quite compares to watching the Moon slowly eclipse the Sun until the its black disk is set against the ghostly white corona.
