How Lunar Eclipse different from Solar Eclipse?

The phenomenon behind the solar eclipse is basic as it occurs when the Sun, Moon as well as Earth are all in a straight line in such a manner that the Moon blocks the rays of the Sun to reach the Earth’s atmosphere. In a total eclipse, the disk of the Sun is completely covered by the Moon. In partial and annular eclipses, only part of the Sun is covered.

For the duration of a solar eclipse, it is the Moon that comes in the middle of the Sun and the Earth. Either, the Moon partially or fully blocks sunlight from getting Earth atmosphere, making the appearance of a large ring of fire in the sky.

A solar eclipse is unsafe to look at with the naked eye whereas, lunar eclipse are safe to watch with the naked eye. Also, solar eclipse is only visible in some part of the world, while lunar eclipses, on the other hand is visible from large parts of the world.
