During an eclipse, the moon perfectly coincides with the sun.
This is just a coincidence, an exception. The size of the two objects and their relative distance are not correlated; indeed, millions of years ago the moon was closer and it will be further away.
in the universe billions of billions of planets may have satellites, but very few of them could project a mask, like the moon now.
