The Sun, Moon, Earth, and Tides

All of these are eclpises and the two pictures to the right are high and low tides. The two pictures on the left are partial eclipses.

Solar Eclipse: The moon's shadow covers part of Earth.Lunar Eclipse: Earth's shadow is completely covering the moon.Tides: The gravitational force of the moon acts on Earth, pulling on the solid parts of Earth at times for low tide and the water parts at others for high.
