Incomprehensible

With the excuse of this spectacular multiphotograph of a solar eclipse [via Neatorama], I repost a thought on the phenomena from 2003 (below).

Solar Eclipse multi exposure multi camera photograph

There’s something more fascinating in sun eclipses than the eclipse itself

Sun eclipses occur because and only because the combination of the diameter of the moon, the diameter of the sun, and the distance between the sun and the moon and between the moon and us is perfect. If just one of these values were different, sun eclipses simply wouldn’t exist on Earth. It looks like it has been calculated to the milimeter by… coincidence? No comment.
