Abstract : Astronomers are discovering different and quirky solar systems with each passing day. This creates possibilities for the discovery of various types of syzygy, which have not been described or studied before. It is necessary to look into such possibilities from a mathematical point of view so that astronomers can use them to make their mathematical models for exo-planet and exo-moon hunting more precise. For example, in system GJ3512 it is possible that a planet can eclipse another planet. Similarly, there is a possibility that the two moons of Jupiter can eclipse at the same time and same position In this poster, the authors have discussed a new and more precise nomenclature for the existing occultations and transits. Authors have also the possibilities of some new kinds of eclipses and suggested a proper nomenclature for them as well so any new development can be properly explored and classified. This poster also discusses: how even if the celestial arrangement is the same, after changing the observer’s position, the entire phenomenon gets changed. For example, humans are soon going to inhabit different celestial bodies, one of them being the moon. The eclipses on Earth will seem different on the moon. Such that when a Lunar Eclipse occurs on the earth, it will be a Solar Eclipse on the moon. Eclipses, transits and occultation are commonly used by astronomers to find details about celestial bodies. Hence, it becomes even more important to clearly name the arrangement to explain the occurrence and its meaning. This poster is an attempt to review the current as well as possible new astronomical phenomena and name them precisely keeping the observer’s position in mind. Even though authors have covered a wide range of eclipses and occultations, authors believe this may not be the end.
