A total lunar eclipse occurs when the moon enters the shadow of Earth and gets cut off from all direct sunlight. This can only happen at full moon when it is directly opposite the sun as seen from Earth. If the moon’s orbit was in the same plane as the Earth’s, a total eclipse would happen every month. The orbit is tipped about 5° however, so the moon is more often out of alignment with the sun and Earth when it is full.
