Eclipse FOMO: When and Where to Catch the Next One!

The 2017 solar eclipse left us with a newfound appreciation for astronomy and a plethora of memes to go through over the coming weeks. Not only was the eclipse visible in the entire continental U.S. and much of North and Central America, it was also the first to traverse the entire country in the last 100 years! If you didn’t get to see it, or if you somehow didn’t know it was happening, we will outline exactly when and where you can catch the next one.

So, when and where is the next Eclipse? Luckily, you won’t have to wait that long. The next total solar eclipse will take place on April 8th, 2024, only a mere 7 years away. Time flies when it’s spent planning for your next eclipse watch-party.

Here’s a list of places where a total eclipse will be visible:

  • Austin, TX
  • Dallas, TX
  • Cleveland, OH
  • Buffalo, NY
  • Montpelier, VT
  • Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Can’t get to these wonderful cities? Don’t fret! These places will experience a partial eclipse, with some having up to 85% of the sun covered!

  • Los Angeles, CA
  • New York, NY
  • Washington, DC
  • Boston, MA
  • Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  • Havana, Cuba
  • Reykjavik, Iceland
  • Azores, Portugal

So don’t wait- start planning early for your next eclipse viewing with your students, and help them become avid astronomers themselves. Browse tours to these destinations and many more here.
