Future Solar Eclipses

The next few Total Solar Eclipses

Upcoming total solar eclipses 2017-2024

For more information about a particular eclipse, click on the map or date.

July 2019 - South America - Sunset eclipse touches South America. Best location is in the South Pacific, nearer the tropics. An aircraft or ship is the recommended way to see this one! 
December 2020 - South America - Good time of year for a total solar eclipse in South America. Mid eclipse crosses continent with good opportunities for cruise ships to be in the area. 
December 2021 - Antarctica - Looks like an air intercept out of South America(eFlight) is the best option for this one. There might be expedition ships available as well since the time of year is favorable for getting in the path.  
April 2024 - North America - April showers... this is not a good time of year for most of the USA and Canada to see an eclipse. The weather may be a bit clouded but with luck one would be able to watch an eclipse almost twice the duration of the 2017 eclipse.
