Hey, That's an Eclipse

You're watching your favorite toon on TV. Just then your kid brother walks in and before you could say anything, his little head is right in front of the TV. What's he done? His little head has eclipsed your favorite TV show.

Sometimes the moon comes in front of the sun and covers the sun. This we call as a solar eclipse.

This means that you can also eclipse other things. Hold your hand in front of your eyes and cover the sight of a tall building. Hey, you've eclipsed the building. A small hand can eclipse a tall building. In the same way the smaller moon can eclipse a larger sun.

Try eclipsing things around you with your hands. The tree, the clouds, the hills and others. Have lots of fun doing this.

Try saying this:
"Sunny sun's sunshine shall not shine, since a new moon shone it away."
