Did an eclipse occur with each full moon and each new moon during the year of 2012?

Yet any given year can have only two annular or total solar eclipses, as will be the case in 2012. These alignments don’t occur at every new and full Moon because the lunar orbit is tipped about 5° to Earth’s orbital plane — only occasionally do the Sun, Earth, and Moon line up exactly enough for an eclipse to occur.

Did an eclipse occur with each full and new moon?

A solar eclipse does not occur at every new moon, nor does a lunar eclipse occur at every full moon, because the Moon’s orbital plane is inclined to the ecliptic, the plane of the orbit of Earth around the Sun. The angle between the planes is about 5°; thus, the Moon can pass well above or below the Sun.
