An '''eclipse''' occurs when one body obscures light from another body. The best known phenomenon of this type is a Solar eclipse, which occurs when the [[Moon]] passes between the [[Earth]] and the [[Sun]], blocking the Sun's light from a region on the planet's surface.  There is also the more common Lunar Eclipse where the full moon passes inside the Earth's shadow leaving it only lit by reflected Earth light.
