The Lunar Eclipse is a phenomenon which occurs two to five times a year, when a darkened area appears upon the surface of the Moon. Unlike the Solar Eclipse which is seen in totality from only a small strip of land on the Earth's surface, the Lunar Eclipse is an event which is seen by anyone who can see the Moon in their sky.

Proposed Mechanisms

There are several potential mechanisms for the occurance of the Lunar Eclipse.

Electromagnetic Acceleration

Under the celestial model of Electromagnetic Acceleration the Sun's rays of light are bending in upwards parabolic arcs around it, illuminating the Moon. The Lunar Eclipse is a phenomenon which occurs when the Moon occasionally and temporarily moves beyond the boundary edge of sunlight during its diurnal progress above the Earth.

Shadow Object

It has been suggested that there may be an unseen celestial body which moves around the Sun, located over the daylight side of the Earth. Known as the Shadow Object or the Antimoon, this body occasionally intersects light between the Sun and Moon and causes the Lunar Eclipse.

Prediction in astronomy is generally achieved through assessment of patterns. Astronomers use cycles to predict the recurrence of the eclipses.
