How often do lunar and solar eclipses occur?

Lunar Eclipses (the darkening of a full moon by the shadow of the Earth) occur every 6 months, and total lunar eclipses normally come in sets of three, followed by three partial eclipses.The lunar eclipse of June 26, 2010 is a partial eclipse visible mainly in Australia. There will be total lunar eclipses on December 21 (2010), June 15 (2011), and December 10 (2011).Solar Eclipses (shadow of the Moon partially or fully blocking the Sun) can occur two to five times a year, but the majority are partial eclipses. Total eclipses occur about once every 18 months, and affect a very limited area. The maximum coverage of the solar disk lasts between 6 and 7.5 minutes.
