Summary of Eclipses: Introduction

Type of Resource



The goal of this virtual lab is to examine how lunar and solar eclipses happen, and how scientists predict where and when eclipses can be observed.

Performance Expectations

HS-ESS1-4   Use mathematical or computational representations to predict the motion of orbiting objects in the solar system.

MS-ESS1-1   Develop and use a model of the Earth-sun-moon system to describe the cyclic patterns of lunar phases, eclipses of the sun and moon, and seasons.
