How Solar Eclipses Happen - An Infographic

Solar Eclipses - How They Happen is a nice infographic from Turu. The infographic provides short explanations of three types of solar eclipses, how they happen, and how often they happen on average. The infographic also presents some information specific to the recent solar eclipse over Australia. I've put the infographic in a frame to make it fit below.
Applications for Education
Solar Eclipses - How They Happen could make a nice supplementary resource to support a lesson on eclipses and orbits. The infographic could be printed and posted in your classroom or just posted on your class blog.
