Solar Eclipse Dates for the Next Two Years

The following are the solar eclipses for the next two years:

October 23, 2014: Partial Eclipse of the Sun. This partial solar eclipse is visible from most of North America (but not Hawaii). Western North America will see the full extent of the eclipse, while Eastern North America will only see the very beginning of the eclipse before the Sun sets below the horizon. The eclipse will begin at 12:38 pm PDT on October 23rd and will end at 4:52 pm, however the times during which the eclipse is visible from any specific location will vary significantly, with the eclipse typically starting between 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm (PDT) and ending 2 – 3 hours later (or whenever the Sun sets below the horizon). For example, from San Francisco the eclipse will be visible from 1:51 pm to 4:32 pm (PDT).

March 20, 2015: Total Eclipse of the Sun. This eclipse will not be visible from North America but will be visible from Greenland, Iceland, Europe, North Africa, and northwestern Asia.

September 13, 2015: Partial Eclipse of the Sun. This partial eclipse will not be visible from North America but will be visible from parts of southern Africa, the southern half of Madagascar, the southern Indian Ocean, and the eastern part of Antarctica.
