April 8th, 2024 - right through the Greater Toronto Area. Perfect.

And Montreal. I would guess that some 50-60% of Canada's population will be less than 25 km away from being in the path of totality.

Carbondale, IL also gets the 2024 eclipse. So lucky, Salukis.

Looks like it is 2024 or bust for me.

San Antonio is on the 2024 tour. And in the western sky - the direction my balcony faces. Now all I have to do is live that long.

2045.  Goes right over my house in Clearwater.  Of course, I'll be 80 by then.  Something to look forward to and try to keep from dying before, I guess.

July 2, 2019 goes a few miles south of Buenos Aires and looks like it might be right on top of Cordoba but it's hard to tell. Not a bad trip if you don't mind people speaking Spanish with an Italian accent.

Been on my bucket list forever.

In the path of totality yesterday and the clouds covered it 10 minutes before totality .  Gonna take a while to get over the disappointment.

We get that one in Ohio too. Of course, it's scheduled to be overcast that day.

/ wonders how many eclipses we miss because it's night time

It was cloudy this time here at home, but come 2024, free lodging at the in-laws just outside of Indianapolis!!

Solar eclipses occur in what's called a Saros cycle

Soros!

Yeah, no.

You know what happens if we take our eyes upwards of the horizon for as much as 10 seconds?

3,714 deadly creatures make a rush for our ankles. Snakes, spiders, crocodiles, all of 'em.

Not to mention the drop bears. It's 5 seconds of eyes darting left and right on the ground ahead of us, 2 seconds up into the trees to check for drop bears, then back to scanning the ground. If I looked up to watch an eclipse, I'd be some critter's dinner.

That's the saddest case of free I ever heard.

November 2030, just a bit south of my hometown. Hopefully my allergy medication won't have killed my liver by then.

Echuca it is i guess.

Mildura's pretty. A tourist trap, for sure, but that whole region is easy on the eye.

Doesn't look too bad for New Zealand. The path of totality on the blue one passes right over my home town in 2028. Then there's a pair of them a decade later - winter 2037 and then Boxing Day 2038 - which ought to make the traditional barbecue at the beach interesting.

The 2028 one is especially good - 5 minutes and 10 seconds at totality. It will be NZ's first total eclipse since 1965.

Notice how the sun never eclipses on mother Russia.

Dun dun dun!

Added it to my Calendar even if there's little chance of missing it then. I wonder if the path width, 198 km, cover the area where the full eclipse will be visible or only part of it. I'm about 25 km from the line.

I may see quite a few of those, I plan on being in south America in the next few years and I have property in Spain so there is two more for 2029 and we plan on utilising the wife's Australian passport to retire in NZ so there is three more.
