Lunar Eclipse

Several times a year, the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon, blocking the sunlight that illuminates our natural satellite. Thus the Earth's shadow covers the Moon, and the sunlight doesn't reach the lunar surface. This is called the lunar eclipse; it occurs only during the Full Moon and is visible at nighttime. A partial lunar eclipse, in its turn, means that the Earth’s shadow doesn’t fully cover the lunar disk and a part of it remains illuminated.
