The Next Total Solar Eclipse Is Sooner Than You Think
Mark your calendars. Those who missed yesterday’s total solar eclipse — the first one to have hit both coasts of United States in nearly 100 years — needn’t worry. It turns out Americans will have another shot in just seven years. On April 8, 2024, an eclipse will be visible from Texas to Maine. Then, 20 years later, another can be seen from Montana. It’s a waiting game: NASA predicts it’ll take about 1,000 years for every spot on the U.S. map to get a glimpse.
