What conditions exist during a solar eclipse?

I heard people talking about it and now I cannot think of anything except, “what does that mean?” So I need help to understand it. It has to do with the moon, I think.

Answer #1

‘’everyone else on earth notices a partial eclipse…’’

Unless they are outside of the penumbra or on the night side of the planet, in which case they notice nothing at all out of the ordinary.

Answer #2

The moon must be a new moon.

The moon nees to be between the sun and the earth in the same plane as Earth.

For a total eclipse of the sun to occur, the umbra of the moon should fall on the Earth. Only the people in this area where the umbra falls witnesses a total eclipse everyone else on earth notices a partial eclipse.
