Shadows, Lunar Phases, and Eclipses
This animation shows several angles of the rotation of Earth, the orbit of the Moon about the Earth, and the orbit of the Earth-Moon about the Sun. The appearance of both the Sun and the Moon can be affected by the shadows cast by the Earth and the Moon in the sunlight.

This ten minute video is an animation of a "game show" called "Digestion Questions." The characters are cliche'd and over-exaggerated high school students (the cheerleader, the slacker, and the nerd), and the purpose is comedy-learning.
