Final project: Eclipse

This is an interactive visual representation of the relative positions of the sun, earth and moon in relation to the presence of solar eclipse and lunar eclipse.

From this interactive 3-D representation, pupils can realize that we can see lunar eclipse at places falling into the moon's shadow. On the other hand, we can see solar eclipse at places in falling into the earth's shadow.
