    The rarity is in actually getting to see it. For most of North America, it's on the wrong side of the planet right now.

    For large parts of Europe, cloud cover is ruining things.

    So while there may be one almost every year, the number that you could see from your location is much lower, and the number that you actually -can- see, due to clouds or fog or whatever, is lower still.
