Importance of Eclipses
Eclipses are useful to measure the dimension of the moon and its parallax through
observation of the star occultation.
During eclipses, we can determine how rapidly the moon's surface cools off when the
sun's radiation is suddenly cut off.
Total solar eclipses are of great help to astronomers, During this phenomena, astronomers
can study the corona and the atmosphere of the sun.
