This page contains a summary of all eclipses of the Sun occurring in the recent past and near future. Each eclipse has a link to a page providing full details, including maps of the visibility of the eclipse.

This site has data on every eclipse from 2000 BC to 3000 AD. If you would like to browse all the eclipses, go to the full solar eclipse catalog; or you can search the entire database.

Careless observing of a solar eclipse can cause permanent eye damage; so be sure to read about eclipse eye safety.

For every eclipse, I've shown its date, magnitude, and Saros series number. The magnitude represents the fraction of the Sun's disc that is obscured at maximum eclipse, which depends on how close the Moon is to the Earth at the time (its orbit isn't circular). A value of 1.00 means that the disc is exactly obscured, giving a perfect view of the corona and prominences. More than 1.00 means that a little more than the disc is covered — a total eclipse; and less than 1.00 means that it isn't fully covered. This means either a partial eclipse, or an annular eclipse, where a ring of the Sun is visible around the Moon.

You can click on the date of any eclipse to go to a page of details, including maps, for that eclipse.

Solar Eclipses in the Next 20 Years

The following chart shows the paths of the total (in blue), annular (in red), and hybrid (with a yellow outline) solar eclipses. Use the zoom controls on the left to zoom in and out; hover over the marker in the middle of an eclipse track to see information on that eclipse. Bear in mind that for each eclipse shown, a partial eclipse is visible over a much wider area.

Note that eclipse dates are specified relative to UT. You have not selected a timezone for eclipse timings, so all times are shown in UT (essentially GMT).
