Solar and Lunar Eclipses in 2020

Solar and Lunar Eclipses in 2020
Six eclipses occur in 2020, with one total and one annular solar eclipse in the mix. But the four lunar eclipses will be disappointing brushes through the fringe of Earth's shadow.

Up to seven eclipses of the Sun and Moon can take place in one year, though the last time that happened was 1982, and the fewest possible is four. The mix of six events occurring in 2020 is especially interesting: The two solar eclipses will be "central" events (one total and one annular), yet all four of the lunar eclipses will be penumbral and therefore hardly noticeable. North Americans will be disappointed to learn that they'll have a chance to see only two of the penumbral events.
