The term eclipse comes from the Latin eclipsis, whose origin is a Greek word meaning “disappearance”. In any case, the use of the concept does not refer to a disappearance, but to the transitory concealment, either total or partial, of a star due to the interposition of another celestial body.
However, we cannot forget that in a more colloquial way the term eclipse is used as a synonym for disappearance. Specifically, it is used to reflect that a specific person or object is absent or has disappeared. According to abbreviationfinder, EC stands for Eclipse Console.
Eclipses are part of the phenomenon known as syzygy, which occurs when a planet or the Moon is in line with the Earth and the Sun. The syzygy of the Moon takes place with the full moon (plenilunio) and the new moon (novilunio).
Although the most common eclipses are solar eclipses and lunar eclipses, which occur when the Sun and Moon align with planet Earth in such a way that light is blocked, there are other eclipses beyond the Earth-Earth link. Moon Sun.
In lunar eclipses, the Earth obscures the Moon by interposing itself between it and the Sun. It can be distinguished between total, partial or penumbral lunar eclipses, depending on the percentage of the satellite that remains within the shadow cone projected by our planet.
In the case of solar eclipses, the Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth, obscuring the star. It is also possible to differentiate between total, partial or annular solar eclipses.
It is possible to predict eclipses thanks to the calculation of the orbits of the Earth and the Moon, which allows us to pinpoint the exact positions of their shadows. On the other hand, eclipses are cyclical phenomena, a characteristic that also makes their prediction possible.
In addition to all of the above, we cannot ignore the fact that “Eclipse” is also one of the films that give shape to the well-known Twilight Saga, based on the literary work of Stephanie Meyer. Specifically, this film is the third production of this film series where we are told the love story that is established between two young people belonging to two totally different worlds: Bella, a human, and Edward Cullen, a vampire.
In one of the most successful sagas in history, both cinematographically and literary speaking, it has become the one that has broken absolutely all kinds of records worldwide.
In the same way, we must not forget that one of the most important songs in the history of music and specifically from the 80s makes use of the term that we are now analyzing in its title. Specifically, we are referring to “Total Eclipse of the Heart” which was performed by rocker Bonnie Tyler.
Jim Steinman was the one who created said song that was included in the fifth record work of the aforementioned interpreter, entitled “Faster than the speed of the night”, which was released in 1983. More than eight million copies were sold said song that became the most important of Tyler’s career.
