The next total solar eclipse is July 2, 2019. This one, unfortunately, won’t be visible in the United States like the solar eclipse today.

The July 2 total solar eclipse is the very next chance the world will have to see the moon completely overshadow the sun. But only a small part of the world will get to see it. Totality will be seen in the southern Pacific Ocean, east of New Zealand, to the Coquimbo Region in Chile, and finally to Argentina at sunset.

This one will have an eclipse that last longer than the one today. The maximum length will be 4 minutes and 32 seconds. Today’s maximum is just around 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

Here’s a map of where the totality of that eclipse will be visible, according to NASA:

The path of totality for July 2, 2019.

It looks like you’ll have the best chance to see it if you visit Argentina or take a boat out into the Pacific Ocean. The first location to see the totality will get to view it at 18:01 UTC. The last chance to see the totality will be at 20:44 UTC.

The path of totality for this eclipse will be 200 km wide at its maximum.

Because of how remote this total eclipse will be, it’s a sure bet that this one won’t attract nearly the attention or the media coverage that today’s eclipse has seen. But if you’re in the area, it would be fun to watch it and compare it to the one today.
