While they are rare, a total eclipse of the sun happens much more often. It just so happens that they are more or less visible depending entirely on the viewer’s geographic vantage point.
Solar eclipses are fairly numerous, about 2 to 4 per year, but the area on the ground covered by totality is only about 50 miles wide.
In any given location on Earth, a total eclipse happens only once every hundred years or so, though for selected locations they can occur as little as a few years apart.
