MIKE MOSS SAYS:      Mika,    A lunar eclipse occurs when the un, earth ann moon are precisely lined up so that the moon passes through the earth's shadow. This block direct light from the sun and leaves the moon darkened for a time. The moon may only brush through a portion of the earth's shadow, in which case the event is called a partial eclipse.
