A solar eclipse is a pretty awesome sight and definitely one worth seeing in your lifetime

If you live in the States there’s a solar eclipse on the 23rd August. Don’t live in the US but want to see an eclipse? Perhaps you’re in Egypt – there’s one happening in Cairo in 2027 or Lagos in 2034!

To find out exactly when there’s an eclipse by you check out this awesome dataviz by Denise Lu at The Washington Post. It shows you how many solar eclipses are left in your lifetime and where in the world they are. Just type in your birth year under ‘I was born in the year’ and drag the globe to explore the eclipse paths.
