Yesterday's eclipse was truly incredible! But if you didn't see it then you'll have more opportunities to view other total solar eclipses in the future. Over the next 50 years, there will be 32 solar eclipses where a portion of the path of totality passes over land or very close to it.

Total solar eclipses occur about every 18 months but each one is only visible to a very small part of the world's population. The August 21 eclipse was nicknamed The Great American Eclipse because only people in America were able to view it in its totality.

So even though eclipses are quite frequent, you have to be in the right place at the right time to see them. On the maps below, anyone located between the blue lines will witness that particular total solar eclipse. If you're located on the red line, the eclipse will last for the longest amount of time.

Look at these Google Maps posted by Time Magazine that show the next total solar eclipses all the way through 2067. The next one to pass over the U.S. is in 2024!
