Lunar Moon

Why phases of Moon are not lunar eclipses?

Whle lunar eclipses are for smaller duration on a full-moon night, phases are every night long.

A lunar eclipse, by definition, is when the part of the moon illuminated by the sun "falls" into the shadow cast by the earth. Phases are not considered eclipses, because the dark part of the moon, is not in the earth's shadow. It is the side facing away from the sun, and therefore, not illuminated.
