How does Sun Eclipse form?

Photobucket

We know that the Earth revolves round the Sun and The Moon revolves round the Earth.

During these revolutions, at certain times the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth along a straight line.

Thus, the Moon blocks the sunlight from reaching the Earth.

The eclipse occurs if the Moon’s shadow falls on the Earth’s surface at that time.
