If you loved seeing August’s solar eclipse and are eager to see another one, don’t miss this live webinar on upcoming total and annular solar eclipses.
You’ll need to head to the Southern Hemisphere to see the total solar eclipses in 2019, 2020, or 2021.

Now that the Great American Eclipse of 2017 has come and gone, I’m already getting scads of emails from people who can’t wait to witness totality again. “When’s the next solar eclipse?” they ask. “Where can I sign up for more information?”
There’s no “TSE” in 2018. Instead, nearly two years will pass until your next opportunity to stand in the Moon’s shadow again. On paper, the solar eclipse of July 2, 2019, offers up to 4m 33s of totality, nearly double what eclipse-goers witnessed next August. However, to experience that you’ll need to be bobbing somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean or standing in central Chile or Argentina (the path’s only landfall).
But where are the best locations? And what about the eclipses after that? Fortunately, you can have all your questions answered this coming week, when eclipse-chase Jamie Carter will be offer a live webinar about the solar eclipses in 2019 and afterward. He’ll share with you the essential characteristics and travel possibilities of upcoming solar eclipses to help you choose which to see.
