Most of us remember with awe and fondness the great solar eclipse that moved across the USA in 2017.  I wrote a piece about my experience in Oregon, which you can read at this link if you are interested.

I wanted you to be aware of two major eclipses coming within the next year.  Often it requires some strategizing to see these, so it's not too early to start planning on how to see them.

An annular eclipse will occur in a few months, on October 14th.  The path is outlined below and with luck a lot of people will be able to see it.


A bigger event will be a total solar eclipse on April 8th.  The path of totality is outlined below, including Texas, much of the Midwest and of the northeastern states.



Weather and health permitting, I hope to see both.

The 2017 solar eclipse was truly a remarkable event that left a lasting impression on many of us. Your experience in Oregon must have been incredible! Thank you for the heads-up about the upcoming eclipses. It's definitely not too early to start planning. The annular eclipse on October 14th sounds especially exciting. I look forward to strategizing my viewing plans to ensure I don't miss this awe-inspiring celestial event. Thanks for sharing this information!
