Jenna's Glog on lunar phases

A lunar eclipse is the blocking of sunlight to the moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when Earth is directly between the sun and the moon. When the moon is in Earth's umbra, you see a total lunar eclipse. You can see the edge of Earth's shadow on the moon before and after a total eclipse. During a lunar eclipse, Earth blocks sunlight from reaching the moon. A partial lunar eclipse occurs when the moon passes partly into the umbra of Earth's shadow. The edge of the umbra appears blurry, and you can watch it pass across the moon for two or three hours.
