The recent total solar eclipse has passed, leaving behind a memorable spectacle.

On Monday, millions of people directed their gaze towards the sky to witness the moon's passage between the Earth and the Sun, casting a temporary veil of darkness over the daytime. The Great American Eclipse served as a poignant reminder of the awe-inspiring wonders of the universe, which exist both far beyond our reach yet close enough for us to appreciate their rare and transient occurrences.

For those who missed the opportunity to witness the eclipse, there's no need to worry, as there are more celestial events on the horizon. According to NASA, there are numerous solar and lunar eclipses scheduled for this year and beyond.

Solar Eclipses

Oct. 2, 2024 — Annular solar eclipse

The upcoming significant eclipse is scheduled for this fall and will manifest as an annular solar eclipse, visible primarily in South America. However, parts of South America, Antarctica, the Pacific Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean, and North America will also have the opportunity to witness it as a partial eclipse.

During an annular solar eclipse, the moon is positioned farther away from Earth, causing it to appear smaller than the Sun and resulting in the Sun not being completely obscured.

March 29, 2025 — Partial solar eclipse

This partial eclipse will be observable across a wide swath of countries spanning North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, as well as regions encompassing the Atlantic Ocean and the Arctic Ocean.

Sept. 21, 2025 — Partial solar eclipse

Following in the same year, Australia, Antarctica, the Pacific Ocean, and the Atlantic Ocean will have the opportunity to experience a partial eclipse.

Feb. 17, 2026 — Annular solar eclipse

Antarctica will have the privilege of witnessing the annular solar eclipse, while a partial eclipse will be observable across Antarctica, Africa, South America, as well as extensive areas of the Pacific, Atlantic, and Indian Oceans.

Aug. 12, 2026 — Total solar eclipse

By August 2026, sections of Greenland, Iceland, Spain, Russia, and a limited portion of Portugal will fall within the trajectory of a total solar eclipse, while a partial eclipse will be observable in Europe, Africa, North America, as well as regions encompassing the Atlantic Ocean, Arctic Ocean, and Pacific Ocean.

As per NASA, the date specified for each eclipse corresponds with the local date of the location where the eclipse is anticipated to take place.

Lunar Eclipses

Sept. 18, 2024 — Partial eclipse

The partial lunar eclipse will be observable across the Americas, Europe, and Africa.

March 14, 2025 — Total eclipse

The total lunar eclipse will be visible from the Pacific, the Americas, Western Europe, and certain regions of Western Africa.

When is the next total solar eclipse in the US?

Jumping ahead a few years, the subsequent total solar eclipse visible in the United States is slated for March 30, 2033. Portions of Alaska, particularly Nome and Utqiaġvik, will fall within the path of totality and will witness the eclipse during the morning hours.

According to The Planetary Society, the subsequent total solar eclipse visible in the continental U.S. is not expected until August 23, 2044. This eclipse's trajectory will commence in Greenland, traverse through Canada, and conclude as the sun sets in Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. During this eclipse, the path of totality will solely intersect with these three states.

Remarkably, almost precisely one year later, there will be another total solar eclipse spanning coast to coast. On August 12, 2045, the path of totality will encompass California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida, with a partial eclipse observable across other states.
