As you can see from the above extract from dictionary.reference.com the generic astronomy term for an "Eclipse" is used for a crossing of a shadow from the Moon to the Earth or the Earth to the Moon i.e. during these two episodes, one of the said objects passes in front of the Sun casting a shadow on the other.
It has become increasingly obvious to regular readers of Piers Corbyn "Red Warning" forecasts that he is onto something very important with the forecasting of "R" periods, in that, there is more going on between the Sun, Moon and Earth then shadows crossing.
The "R" periods have supported and demonstrate there are climatic as well as geological changes during these periods on our world and that there seems to be an enhancement by a physical change to the Earth. i.e. the development of Hurricanes and Typhoons seem to "power up" when there is a lunar phase in combination with Solar Activity as well as an increase of erupting Volcanoes and Earthquakes.
The research and investment needed to conclude such a statement as being scientifically plausible will be difficult to find as grants for Climate Research seem totally bias to projects that bolster "Man Made" climate change.
That is not to say someone or an institution will come forward to fund this very important work. Afterall there have been Trillions invested in the spurious and very silly idea that "man" has changed our climate only to have found NOTHING of ANY significance.
Investing in research that show REAL physical changes in the Earths climate from the Sun and Moon is not such a crazy request to make, and if you are involved with institutions that would benifit from this research drop Piers a line at WeatherAction.com
In honour of the work of Piers Corbyn I will try to re-invent the Dictionary term "Eclipse" to incorporate:
"Eclipse" a monthly or weekly astronomical event between the Sun, Moon and Earth, whereby the passage of the Solar Wind during a Lunar Phase is seen to make physical changes to the Earth's Climate.
You never know, in the process of time, this may well be a change to the Dictionary that our children will see.
Good luck Piers, keep up the great work
