There are two times during the year when an eclipse happens. The season for when the eclipse takes places lasts a little over thirty days. The reason an eclipse takes places has to do with the Earth, moon and sun. An eclipse takes place when the Earth, moon and sun are located in a specific location in relation to each other.

Specifically, an eclipse season of over month takes place when the nodes of the moon’s orbit are nearly aligned with the sun. The solar eclipse has to do with the Earth and the sun. The lunar eclipse has to do with the Earth and the moon. In 2002, the lunar eclipse took place on May 26th and the solar eclipse took place on June 10th.
