An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when one celestial object movies into the shadow of another. The term most often used to describe either a solar eclipse, when the moon moves into the shadow of earth.

When the moon is in conjunction with the sun, the moon may pass in front of the sun as seen from a narrow region on the surface of the earth and cause a solar eclipse. At full moon, when the moon is in opposition to the sun. The moon may pass through the shadow of the earth, and a lunar eclipse is visible from the night hair of the earth.
An eclipse does not happen at every new of full moon, because the plane of the orbit of the moon around the earth is tilted with respect to the plane of the orbit of the earth around the sun, so as seen from the earth, when the moon is nearest to the sun (new moon) or at largest distance (full moon), the three bodies usually are not exactly one the same line.

Fruits are a source of nourishing substances that keep us alive and healthy. For example, they contain many vitamins, especially vitamins A and C, and many minerals, such as calcium, potassium, and zinc. They also provide fiber for a healthy digestive system and carbohydrates that the body needs to make energy. They don’t have a lot of calories to make us fat.
People use fruits for many things. We make juices from them. We cook bread and pie with them. We make jams and jellies and sweets. We freeze them to eat later. We even make alcohol from fruit. Beer comes from grains, wine comes from grapes, and some brandies are made from plums, apricots, or other fruits.
But most of the time, we don’t do anything special with fruits. We eat them fresh, just as they are!

On July 20, 1969, the dream to visit the moon came true. Two American astronauts landed on the moon. Their names were Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin.
The first thing the men discovered was that the moon is covered with gray dust. The dust is so thick that the men left footprints wherever they walked. Those were the first footprints any living thing had ever made on the moon. And they could stay there forever! There is no wind or rain to wipe them away.
The two astronauts walked on the moon for four hours. They picked up rocks for earth scientists to study. They dug up dirt to bring back to earth. They set up machines to find out things scientists wanted to know. Then they climbed back into their moon-landing craft.
Next day the landing-craft rockets roared as the two men blasted off from the moon. They joined Michael Collins in the space ship that waited for them above the moon. Then they began the long trip back to earth.
Behind them they left the craters, plains, and tall mountains of the moon. They left the machines they had set up. And they left footprints that may last forever.

Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, and are known for their role in pollination and for producing honey and beeswax. There are nearly 20,000 known species of bees in nine recognized families though many are undescribed and the actual number is probably higher. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, in every habitat on the planet that contains insect-pollinated flowering plants.
Bees have a long proboscis (a complex "tongue") that enables them to obtain the nectar from flowers. They have antennae almost universally made up of 13 segments in males and 12 in females, as is typical for the super family. Bees all have two pairs of wings, the hind pair being the smaller of the two; in a very few species, one sex or caste has relatively short wings that make flight difficult or impossible, but none are wingless.
The smallest bee is Trigona minima, a stingless bee whose workers are about 2.1 mm (5/64") long. The largest bee in the world is Megachile pluto, a leaf cutter bee whose females can attain a length of 39 mm (1.5"). Members of the family Halictidae, or sweat bees, are the most common type of bee in the Northern Hemisphere, though they are small and often mistaken for wasps or flies.

A. Describing bees in general
B. Explaining bees in Antarctica

Maura, who liked to be thought of as the most beautiful and powerful queen of Arabia, had many suitors. One by one she had discarded them, until her list was reduced to just three sheiks, all equally young and handsome, rich and strong. It was very hard to decide who would be the best of them.
One evening, Maura disguised herself and went to the camp of three sheiks, as they were about to have dinner, and asked them for something to eat.

The following day the queen invited the three sheiks to dinner at her palace. She ordered her servants to give each one exactly what they had given her the evening before.
