What is the difference between a solar eclipse and a partial eclipse?

According to NASA’s website, “A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, casting a shadow on Earth, blocking all or part of the Sun’s light in certain areas. During an eclipse partial, the Moon and the Sun are not perfectly aligned, so the Moon does not completely cover the Sun. This gives the Sun a crescent shape or looks like a “bite” has been taken on the Sun. Sun, depending on how much of the Sun is covered by the Moon.’

In this case, almost 64% of the solar disk at most will be erased, according to NASA.
