Here’s Where You Can See Every Total Solar Eclipse for the Next 50 Years

A total solar eclipse will obscure the sun across Mexico, the U.S., and Canada on April 8 in a rare event. You can find a detailed map showing the path of the eclipse here. But if you live in a place that won’t see the total eclipse or even a partial eclipse, don’t worry: It won’t be the last time the U.S. — and the rest of the world — will get a chance to see the moon block the sun in the coming decades. Over the next 50 years, parts of all seven continents will see total solar eclipses.

Check out the list below to see when the next total solar eclipses will take place until 2067, along with maps of each total solar eclipse’s path. (In each case, the total eclipse will be visible to anyone between the blue lines, while the eclipse will last longest for those on the red line, according to NASA.)
