Description The Sun is about 400 times bigger than the Moon. But it is also about 400 times farther away than the Moon. This remarkable coincidence is the reason why we have spectacular solar eclipses. Besides being beautiful, they are also instrumental. For instance, they provided the basis for the first confirmation of Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity.
