Mum, I'm eclipsing this stone. I'm between the sun and it.
Mum, I'm not big enough to make a total eclipse of the tree stump, come and help.
Mum, I think we should make shadow puppets on the moon. We'd need a really fast plane so we could stay on the edge where the sun comes over, and a REALLY big puppet.
Mum, will the sun still be eclipsed when it comes back up? Oh, no, it will have moved further around.
Mum, the moon was eclipsed. I saw a shadow go on it. And I saw a darker shadow too. I saw it get less and less full all in one morning, not a whole month. It got too low to see though. I hope the people in Africa were watching.
Mum. Mum. MUM. I think he liked it.
