How does a solar eclipse occur?

According to NASA, solar eclipses occur when the sun, moon and Earth fully or partially align.

A total solar eclipse occurs when the three stars are perfectly aligned and only those who are in the area generated by the moon’s shadow will be able to observe such astronomical phenomena.

The partial occurs in stretches where there is no perfect alignment and only a part of the sun is covered by Earth’s natural satellite. In this case, people outside the moon’s shadow area can only see part of the phenomenon.
