Arrow Occultation

An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when an astronomical object is temporarily obscured, either by passing into the shadow of another body or by having another body pass between it and the viewer. An eclipse is a type of syzygy..The term is derived from the ancient Greek noun ἔκλειψις (ékleipsis), which means "the abandonment", "the downfall", or "the darkening of a heavenly body", which is derived from the verb ἐκλείπω (ekleípō) which means "to abandon", "to darken", or "to cease to exist," a combination of prefix ἐκ- (ek-), from preposition ἐκ (ek), "out," and of verb λείπω (leípō), "to be absent"..An eclipse cycle takes place when a series of eclipses are separated by a certain interval of time..Barabás is a village in Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg county, in the Northern Great Plain region of eastern Hungary..A total solar eclipse is in fact an occultation while an annular solar eclipse is a transit..Lunar eclipses occur when the Moon passes through the Earth's shadow..The 8th Spirit is Barbatos.. He is a Great Duke, and appeareth when the Sun is in Sagittary... you think they persecute us to destroy nothing? What's become of all the fine hopes, the trumpets, the angels, all the promises? Every time I've seen it end up in the same way, with torments and dead bodies, with no good come of it.. Huh? All for nothing...
