Total Solar Eclipse on November 13, 2012.
I was not lucky in catching the wonderful nature’s phenomenon of today, that was seen mainly in Australia, but the video shows it was an amazing and beautiful scene. My question now is: How an eclipse can affect nature or humans? I mean, if the moon affects the ocean and the sun affects life in a, let’s say, daily basis, Does the eclipse has an effect on Earth? Besides being a beautiful view, of course. Is there something that changes at the moment of the eclipse? Or maybe a bit earlier or later? I’m interested in these because if celestial bodies affect somehow elements on Earth, then every stage of those elements, may play a part in the Earth’s life.
