Solar eclipses would be a monthly occurrence–every Full Moon–if the Moon’s orbit were on the same plane as the Earth’s orbit around our Sun. Instead, a 5% tilting of the Moon’s orbit causes it to intersect the Earth’s orbit in two places. Total lunar eclipses are visible about once every two years (but not from all parts of the Earth), which is more frequent than even a partial solar eclipse.
