    Another One For Your Science Science Staff: Total Solar Eclipse Paths: 2001 - 2025

    Although partial solar eclipses are quite common and can occur four to seven times a year, total solar eclipses are rare. The number of viewable total solar eclipses are even fewer because in order to be seen, the shadow of the moon during an eclipse must pass over human reachable regions on Earth. Since two-thirds of the Earth is covered by water a large number of total solar eclipses pass over oceans and other remote areas.
