Well, the sun, the earth, and the moon have to be in this one, right?

There's a good diagram (middle of page) in this website of the angles of how the moon directly between the sun and earth.[url]http://www.mreclipse.com/Special/SEprimer.html[/url]

So with circular objects, mark a point on the earth to say where are you. Then position the objects in this position.

Maybe you can use paper mache to make the three balls, then paint over it.

Try to hold the three things in that position. If you would like to move it, so that the earth, moon, sun, are rotating, I'm sorry I don't know of a way to make the three of them do that. Sorry!

Wish you the best of luck!
