  1. Lunar eclipse occurs when the earth comes between the sun and moon. The solar eclipse occurs when the moon comes between a portion of the earth and the sun. Solar eclipses happen more often.

  3. Solar eclipses happen once every 300 years. Lunar eclipses happen two to four times each year. Therefore lunar eclipses happen more often! PsyDAG is wrong on that part.

  8. On average, it takes about 375 years for a total solar eclipse to happen again at the same location. By comparison, a total lunar eclipse, also known as a Blood Moon, can be seen from any location approximately every 2.5 years. There are, on average, about 240 solar eclipses worldwide each century.there is your answer...
