Title: Why Don’t We See Solar Eclipses More Often?

Abstract

August 21 will mark the first total solar eclipse visible from the continental U.S. in 38 years. And it’s the first one that will be observable across the entire contiguous United States since 1918. So, yes, it’s a big deal. Why don’t we see them more often?
