The moon apparently does not orbit in the same plane as earth, so it doesnt provide an eclipse on every orbit. The relative size varies according to the moons position in orbit by up to 10%. During an eclipse of the sun by the moon there may be beading alomng the edge due to the sun shining through lunar vallies. Hamster (talk) 00:28, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

Incidentally, most of the moons of Jupiter do lie on the right plane so cause an eclipse each time. Is there a claim in the article that's wrong or is it just a worthwhile point? Scarlet A.pngbomination 00:47, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
I am reading the cp:Moon talkpage. One of the most hilarious pages over there. Acei9 00:51, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
I just happened to have watched a youtube video on why creationists are idiots about the moon being designed to facilitate astronomy and thought I would toss a few points into consideration. Hamster (talk) 01:01, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
I just realized that Order is unblocked. Of course, he hasn't contributed since 2008, but still... --User:Theautocrat/Sig 01:14, 18 January 2010 (UTC)
Actually, I've been trying to find a video that showed how the whole "the moon is the right size" thing isn't even unique in the solar system. There's at least two or three that happen to be x times smaller but x times closer than the sun. But I really can't find it anywhere, does this sound familiar?
