When can I see the next total solar eclipse from North America?
The next total solar eclipse visible from the United States occurs on August 21, 2017. The track goes from Oregon at its start, and exits on the east coast near South Carolina. After that, the next one visible from the Lower-48 will be on April 8, 2024 which will track northeast from Texas to Maine and cross the path of the 2017 eclipse near Carbondale, Illinois. Since 1503, there have been 15 total solar eclipse paths that have crossed the path of the August 2017 eclipse. Calculations show that it will take about 1000 years for every geographic location in the Lower-48 to be able to view a total solar eclipse.
