Countdown to the Next Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2025

Note:  A penumbral lunar eclipse takes place when the Moon moves through the faint, outer part of Earth's shadow, the penumbra. This type of eclipse is not as dramatic as other types of lunar eclipses and is often mistaken for a regular Full Moon.

Countdown to Summer Solstice 2024

We lose one minute of sunlight every day until winter solstice.

Countdown to the Next Annular Solar Eclipse 2024

Note:  An annular solar eclipse happens when the Moon covers the Sun's center, leaving the Sun's visible outer edges to form a “ring of fire” or annulus around the Moon.

10/02/2024 Annular 7 min 25 sec 0.933 Southeast Pacific, far southern South America

 

02/17/2026 Annular 2 min 20 sec0.963 Antarctica

08/02/2027 Total 6 min 23 sec1.079 Central Atlantic, Mediterranean region, Egypt, Red Sea area

Countdown to the Next Partial Lunar Eclipse 2024

Note:  Partial solar eclipses happen when the Moon comes between the Sun and Earth, but the Moon only partially covers the Sun's disk.

Countdown to the Next Total Solar Eclipse 2044

A total solar eclipse won't be visible again from the contiguous US until August 22, 2044, but totality will only occur over North Dakota and Montana, plus northern Canada. The next total solar eclipse with a coast-to-coast path spanning the Lower 48 states will occur on August 12, 2045.

Countdown to the Next Hybrid Total Solar Eclipse 2031

The last hybrid total solar eclipse was the Ningaloo on April 20, 2023.

 

A hybrid total solar eclipse is a type of solar eclipse that looks like an annular solar eclipse or a total solar eclipse, depending on the observer's location along the central eclipse path.

During a hybrid total solar eclipse, the Earth's curvature brings some sections of the eclipse path into the Moon's umbra, the darkest part of its shadow that creates total solar eclipses, while other areas remain outside the umbra's reach, causing an annular eclipse.

The next hybrid total solar eclipses will be: November 14, 2031. Following that: November 25, 2049, and May 20, 2050.
