Earth's shadow is still almost 10 times the moon's diameter, even as far away as it is.

Interesting facts, earth 12,756 km diameter, moon 3,476 km, ratio of 4:1, sun 110 times the size of the earth.

Earth to moon 384,400 km, earth to sun 149,597,870 km.   

Thus the shadow of the earth is 0 degrees, 32 seconds in arc or 3,556 km wide at the distance of the moon, 

the moon is 3,476 km in diameter, thus the earth's shadow just barely covers it!! 

No wonder the full eclipse is so short, and so rare.

Spring is here in S. Carolina, these daffodils are growing wild out on the SRS site.
