Eclipses are events where one object is obscured by another, usually in astronomy when referring to a lunar eclipse (when the moon moves into Earth’s shadow) or a solar eclipse (when the moon is between the Sun and the Earth and casts a shadow on Earth).

Eclipses are relatively rare, and have been observed since antiquity and were often viewed as omens until they were scientifically explained with the advent of modern astronomy.

They can be dangerous to look at (especially solar eclipses), but using filters and protective eyewear, they can be photographed with great results:
