This is when we get phenomena like annular eclipses, where a slightly smaller looking Moon crosses the Sun in our sky and doesn't quite manage to cover it.

The Wikipedia article on solar eclipses has a pretty in depth explanation of why there are different types of solar eclipses.

Again, nope. What's so satanic about a solar eclipse? It's just the view of the sun being obscured by another body. Here's the thing happening on Jupiter:
Yes it is, they are approximately the same size when viewed from earth.

Read Human race get off your knees. The moon blocks out the totality of the positive energy of the sun so that we decode reality with the five senses and it hooks us to the reptilian brain. I was speaking in a broad sense but that is pretty satanic in my opinion.
