Solution:

When the Moon is found between the Sun and the Earth, ie. all three bodies meet in a straight line, an event known as a lunar or solar eclipse occurs. The difference in the lunar and solar eclipses is in which phase the Moon is then. During the new moon, a solar eclipse is formed, and during a full moon, a lunar eclipse is formed.
