We watched the solar eclipse last night although we did not have the best view of it which was a few miles away. The distance from the earth to the moon varies and this time the moon was a bit too far away. When I was younger, there was a ring of fire eclipse where the moon was the perfect distance from earth. The moon was the same apparent size as the sun and the corona was very visible. In fact, the sun was visible through some lunar craters at the very edge of the moon’s edge. That was very spectacular, but I don’t recall whether or not I saw it in person or just read about it.
