(Submitted September 30, 1996)
I live down in Southeast Texas. I saw the lunar eclipse on September
26, 1996 I just wanted to know how many years does that certain
Lunar eclipses happen every year or two. One of the astronomy textbooks
that we have has a list of 16 in 13 years. Of those, 11 were total eclipses.
There will be another lunar eclipse next year but it will not be total.
The next total lunar eclipse visible from the US will occur in the year
