An Eclipse is when a celestial (stars, planets, moons ect.) object passes over another celestial object, if it's a star being blocked out, this is called a solar eclipse. When our Moon passes over our view of the sun, this is called a SYZYGY.

How do they happen?

They happen when two or more celestial objects align, causing the closer of the two to partially or completely block out the other. Nothing causes this to happen, it just happens because of the planets' orbits.

The Effects

If it a star being blocked out, this can cause partial or complete darkness, depending on the size of the closer object. If it is not a star or bright planet, it would just cause you not to see them.
