I suggest you complete a new, exciting lesson in which I will show you how to draw an eclipse. The instruction is very simple and contains only five steps.

An eclipse is an astronomical phenomenon in which one celestial body obscures light from another celestial body. In this case, the Moon covers the Sun from the observer.

An eclipse can be total, partial, or annular. A solar eclipse occurs two to five times a year, and the eclipse can be of different types.

In ancient times, a solar eclipse was considered a bad omen, but with the development of astronomy, this phenomenon has received scientific justification.

In the figure you see the Moon and the Sun, while the Sun is partially hidden behind the Moon, that is, a partial eclipse is shown here. To successfully complete this lesson, you will need your ability to draw even circles.
