Predicting the next solar eclipse is no easy matter involving complicated trigonometry, the partial eclipse of April the 8th has everyone taking though.
An eclipse seen by many in Boston happened in 1959 and another predicted for 2079.
Solar eclipses, the scientists tell us, are only visible at any one place every 360, years. This is due to a narrow track of 60 or 70 miles over the earth's surface, from which it is visible.

A total eclipse is when the moon covers the sun entirely as differentiated from a partial eclipse where the moon partially covers the disc of the sun.
So total eclipses are more rare.
