What's the difference between an annular eclipse and a total eclipse?

Differences between annular and total solar eclipses


The Moon is not always the same distance from the Earth as it orbits. When the Sun-Moon-Earth alignment is just right to create an eclipse, if the moon is too far from the Earth, it won't be able to completely block the disk of the Sun. The result is an annulus (or ring), as seen in the top diagram. If the eclipse occurs when the Moon is close enough to entirely block the Sun, the result will be a total eclipse.
