How often does a solar eclipse happen?


1 Answer

Solar eclipses are fairly numerous, about 2 to 4 per year, but the area on the ground covered by totality is only about 50 miles wide. In any given location on Earth, a total eclipse happens only once every hundred years or so, though for some locations they can occur as little as a few years apart
