To cover with or envelop in fog; make foggy
Blur means to smudge or make something indistinct or hazy.
The change of a gas or vapor to a liquid, either by cooling or by being subjected to increased pressure. When water vapor cools in the atmosphere, for example, it condenses into tiny drops of water, which form clouds.
To slow the combustion of (a fire) by cutting off most of the air supply; bank
Water droplets condensed from the air, usually at night, onto cool surfaces near the ground. Dew forms when the temperature of the surfaces falls below the dew point of the surrounding air, usually due to radiational cooling.
To deprive of distinct vision; to hinder from seeing clearly, either by dazzling or clouding the eyes; to darken the senses or understanding of.
To moisturize (plants or dry air, for example) with a fine spray of water.

During a total solar eclipse the disk of the Moon fully covers that of the Sun, and only the Sun's corona is visible. &diamf3; An annular eclipse occurs when the Moon is farthest in its orbit from the Earth so that its disk does not fully cover that of the Sun, and part of the Sun's photosphere is visible as a ring around the Moon. &diamf3; In a lunar eclipse all or a part of the Moon's disk enters the umbra of the Earth's shadow and is no longer illuminated by the Sun. Lunar eclipses occur only during a full moon, when the Moon is directly opposite the Sun.
To obfuscate is to confuse someone, or to obscure the meaning of something.

To make hard to understand or follow; obscure:
Like or full of vapor
- Smog is applied to a low-lying, perceptible layer of polluted air or to a mixture of fog and smoke sometimes appearing in industrial centers: the first three terms are also used figuratively lost in the mists of the past, a troublesome haze of confusion, in a fog of doubt
- Fog suggests a greater density of moisture particles than mist , sometimes suggesting a thickness impenetrable by the vision
- Haze suggests a thin dispersion of smoke, dust, moisture, etc. that makes objects indistinct
- Mist applies to a visible atmospheric vapor of rather fine density that blurs the vision
