I guess you know the drill by now. Round earth with a moon whizzing around, and the pair occasionally block sunlight from each other. Neat stuff. Do you want to see an actual ray diagram of that? Yes! Well, I drew one in Adobe Illustrator, and then converted it to html. Edit: WP Does not … Continue reading What Does it (really) Take for an ECLIPSE?
