  2. In a solar eclipse, the moon covers all or (usually) part of the sun. If the whole sun is covered, it is cal;led a total solar eclipse. The next total eclipse in the United States will occur in 2017. The last ones were in 1979 and 1991 (Hawaii only).

    In a lunar eclipse, all or part of the moon is in the earth's shadow. The moon is still visible in the shadow but is much less bright.
