Question

A lunar eclipse occurs on a ___ day.
  1. crescent
  2. new moon
  3. full moon
  4. third quarter


Solution

The correct option is C full moon
A lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes directly behind the Earth into its umbra (shadow) region. This can occur only when the Sun, Earth, and the Moon are aligned very closely with Earth in the middle. Hence, a lunar eclipse can occur only on the night of a full moon.
