You will see the sunrise and sunset of the Earth lighting up the surface of the Moon — over 350,000 km away. If you were on the Moon, you would see a total solar eclipse as the Earth would be blocking the Sun,” CNN quoted Brad Tucker, an astronomer with the Australian National University’s Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, as saying
