How Often Do Lunar Eclipses Occur?

Answer

Lunar eclipses occur very sporadically and have no consistency in when they will happen. Usually, they will happen several times within a certain period and then stop for a certain period and then happen again. There is no pattern to when they will happen. The Earth, Sun, and Moon all have to be lined up in a certain way and other conditions must be present, so it's very difficult for all these requirements to be met.
