The Moon data I supplied confirms it is. In other words we are just plain lucky and fortunate that we are in an era where the Moon is at a distance 400 times closer to Earth than the Sun while being 400 times smaller in diameter. So we get total solar eclipses. In the past annular eclipses were not possible. The Moon being closer to Earth. In the future, total solar eclipses will be impossible and only annular possible. This of course is also strongly supported by the tides and tidal gravity effects, plus the slowing of the Earth's rotation rate.
