An eclipse is caused by the movement of a moon or planet into the shadow of another. The two types of eclipses that occur on Earth (solar and lunar) involve the interplay of the intersecting rotations of Earth and the moon around the sun.

According to NASA, solar eclipses occur when the moon blocks the view of the sun from Earth, and a lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth's shadow covers the surface of the moon. The perfect alignment necessary for a full eclipse is relatively rare, with partial eclipses happening much more frequently.
A total eclipse is an event in which the moon and sun are in perfect alignment with a spot on Earth. This occurrence is much more rare than an annual eclipse, in which the sun leaves a halo of light around the moon. A random spot on Earth experiences a total eclipse approximately once every 400 year
According to Space.com, a solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the sun and Earth, which casts the moon's shadow on Earth. This event happens only when the sun, moon and Earth are aligned.
A solar eclipse is the result of the moon coming between the Earth and the sun. During an eclipse, the moon casts its shadow upon the Earth. A total solar eclipse can only occur during the phase of the new moon.
Solar eclipses are rare because even though the moon orbits the Earth once a month, it requires a very exact alignment between the Earth, sun and moon to create a solar eclipse. Even when the alignment occurs, the eclipse is limited to a small portion of Earth's surface.
A total lunar eclipse is when the Earth's shadow blocks all of the sun's light from directly reaching the surface of the moon. Eclipses of the moon happen when the sun, Earth and the moon form an almost or exact straight line, which is called a syzygy.
Lunar eclipses are caused when the moon travels through the Earth’s shadow. Complete lunar eclipses are rare, but partial lunar eclipses may occur up to four times per year.
A lunar eclipse happens when the Earth passes between the moon and the sun. Lunar eclipses cast a shadow on the moon due to the Earth's location. From the perspective of the moon, the Earth completely blocks the sun.
