Didn't get it with "soleil"

So, I didn't get it: Are they both incorrect, il fait du soleil and il fait soleil, or just one of them? I guess, both, 'cause I think what I learned was "il y a du soleil", but I just need to make sure. Thanks!

This relates to:

Olga,

Yes I think they are both incorrect:

"Il fait should always be followed by an adjective".

An adjective is an attribute of a noun. When applied to weather, this effectively means words like nice, bad, hot, cold (as shown in the "il fait" examples on that page).

The two "soleil" examples show "il fait" being followed by a noun (soleil) and a partitive article (du).
