Suppose the distance to the Moon were twice its actual value. Could we still have solar eclipses? If so, what type(s)?

If the Moon were twice its actual distance from us, we would no longer be able to see total solar eclipses because the Moon would not be able to completely cover the surface of the Sun; however, we would still see partial and annular eclipses, although the Moon would not block as much of the Sun during these times.
