During a lunar eclipse, Earth lies between the Sun and the Moon. The Moon appears to and then reappear.
During a solar eclipse, the Moon lies between Earth and the Sun. The Moon blocks the normal view of the Sun from Earth, creating the Solar Eclipse.
Solar eclipses are rarer and, when they do occur, they can usually only be seen for a short time. Lunar eclipses, on the other hand, are easier to see (they're at night!) which come more often the solar eclipses.
Both eclipses involve the same three ways: Earth, the Sun, and the Moon. When these three happen to line up, one of them gets blocked from the line of sight.
Wow so much facts now I know the difference. Wish I knew before but now it ended.
