because only rarely does the sun interact with the moon. Since the moon is closer to earth, the moon will cover the sun.

Only rarely does the moon cover the sun (vice versa, or something similar), and that's what causes the eclipse. Hope it helped! ;)

The moon covers the sun, sorry for any confusion!
