Episode Description

Total Eclipse

Once they were dreaded and thought to be dragons eating the sun... but modern science has dispelled mythology and we now look forward to total Solar Eclipses as one of the most spectacular phenomena in the heavens. We explore the complex movements of Earth, Moon and Sun that produce these unusual events... and find out why we may be the only intelligent beings in the known Universe to witness eclipses like we see on Earth.
