An astrological view of the upcoming total solar eclipse of 22 July 2009, which will be the longest eclipse of its type this century.
Given the distance of 93 million miles between sun and earth. What are the chances of the moon with a diameter of 2159 miles being in exactly the correct position to cause an eclipse?
The sun is 400 times the size of the moon yet appears exactly the same size from our point of view. The odds of this bearing in mind the distances involved bust be infinitesimally small.
