You're watching your favorite toon on TV. Just then your kid brother walks in and before you could say anything, his little head is right in front of the TV. What's he done? His little head has eclipsed your favorite TV show.
Sometimes the moon comes in front of the sun and covers the sun. This we call as a solar eclipse.
means that you can also eclipse other things. Hold your hand in front
of your eyes and cover the sight of a tall building. Hey, you've eclipsed
the building. A small hand can eclipse a tall building. In the same
way the smaller moon can eclipse a larger sun.
