Abstract: What is a solar eclipse? What is a lunar eclipse? How
often do they occur? Why are they so rare? In this talk, I will an-
swer and explain these questions. I will also show some pictures and
videos of two total solar eclipses I have seen, August 1999 in Hungary
and August 2017 in South Carolina.
