# Terran eclipse?

Solar and lunar eclipses are pretty straightforward. But what about eclipses when you are standing on the Moon? I have been trying to Google the info, but there's some gaming clan that has taken the name "terran eclipse" so it's hard to find the real stuff.

I was able to find this article on lunar eclipse from the Moon (the Earth eclipsing the sun). But what about the other way - a solar eclipse observed from the Moon? What would Earth look like? Would anything special be happening on the Moon?

• A "terran eclipse" is just a lunar eclipse, observed from the Moon. – Hohmannfan Oct 7 '16 at 15:07
• Trivia: a total lunar eclipse occurred shortly after Apollo 15. (The astronauts had already left.) The mission report states the equipment left there recorded a temperature swing of 283 degrees F (140 degrees C) So expect it to get cold... – Andy Oct 7 '16 at 15:12
• Not an answer, but a helpful piece of Google advice. You can tell Google to omit results with certain words by adding a '-' in front of them. If you search "terran eclipse -game -community", it gets rid of most of that stuff and the results contain more eclipse from the moon results. It doesn't get rid of all of it, but with a few more terms ignored you can boil it down to just what you're looking for. – Cody Oct 7 '16 at 15:51
