: Are there any eclipse conditions where a shadow is cast on the surface of the Sun?

Lau: To have a shadow on surface of the sun, there must be a strong enough light source to produce the shadow in the first place and there seems no such sources around. and since the sun itself is a light source (and the strongest one in the solar system at least) it would not be possible to make any observation (shadow) on the surface of it.
