of some other body, either between it and the eye, or
between the luminous body and that illuminated by it. A
lunar eclipse is caused by the moon passing through the
earth's shadow; a solar eclipse, by the moon coming
between the sun and the observer. A satellite is eclipsed

nature of an eclipse, is called an occultation

regarded as forerunners of evil fortune, a sentiment of
which occasional use is made in literature.
