From the Institute of Physics (IOP), Teachers TV and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), this short video clip shows a simple method for helping students to understand the relative positions of the earth, sun and moon during a solar eclipse.
The video demonstrates how the moon's orbit typically takes its path above or below the path of the sun. During solar eclipses, the moon's path in the sky crosses that of the sun.
