"You'll never make Mother-of-the-Year THIS way!" "Another hot day in the city, dear?" ;s True Life Adventures ©ABOONS SOMETIMES THB Cfr- A C2UN<S1N(S TO ANV •FOOTHOU7, An eclipse of the sun is one of the most startling and fascinating sights man can see. Little by little the moon moves across ;he sun. Finally the sun is entirely covered. Then the sky becomes very dark blue and the trees look almost black. Darkness comes over the earth, and some of the brighter stars are seen in he sky. The air becomes cooler. Chickens go to roost. A glowing lalo called the "corona" shines out around the edges of the dark disk covering the sun. A total eclipse is visible only !rom a narrow strip of the earth's surface called the path of the total eclipse. If a person is outside this iarrow strip of the earth he cannot see the sun completely covered. Many people never see a total eclipse of the sun during their entire lives. An eclipse of the sun occurs ivhen the moon in its journey around the earth passes directly between the earth and the sun, and casts its shadow on the sur face of the earth, An eclipse of the sun occurs only when the moon is new, lor then the moon is on that side of the earth facing toward the sun. If its path lay directly in line with the orbit of the earth about the sun, an eclipse would take place at every new moon. But in ils 29-day trip around the earth the moon passes sometimes above and sometimes below the path oi the earth. Every year, there must be ai least two solar eclipses, am there may be as many as five At any one place on the earth's- surface, a total solar eclipse wil be visible only once in about 360 years! A total eclipse is when the moon hides the sun completely. The time that an eclipse is total s sometimes only a few seconds and never more than about seven and a half minutes. This is because the moon is not always the ame distance from the earth. If s too far from the earth, it can- lot hide the sun completely. In ancient times, people became quite frightened whenever an eclipse occurred. Even in Eu- •ope 400 years ago, men laid in cellars during an eclipse and wo- Tien screamed and fainted!
