Americans will have the chance to view yet another total solar eclipse that falls within its borders on April 8, 2024. According to NASA, the event’s path of totality — a narrow band of land that has a prime view of the moon completely eclipsing the sun — will span from Texas to Maine.

After the 2024 total solar eclipse, there won’t be another in the U.S. for two decades. The next total solar eclipse will be viewable only in Montana on Aug. 23, 2044, and the following year, a solar eclipse with a similar totality path to the one this year will occur on Aug. 12, 2045.

After those, the southern region of the U.S. will experience solar eclipses in both 2052 and 2078, and the northeastern region of the country will experience one in 2079. Alaska will experience its own exclusive total solar eclipses in 2033 and 2097.



But if seven years is too long of a wait for some, there are other vantage points for viewing a total solar eclipse, like Argentina, which will experience a total solar eclipse on July 2, 2019.

Check out the next six total solar eclipses happening across the world from now until 2026 here.
