Next solar eclipse
Name: Dan Heinz
When will the next solar eclipse take place?
The next solar eclipse (an annular one like we had last May 10, 1994)
occurred on April 29, 1995. However, it will be visible only in part of the
Indian Ocean. The next total eclipse occurs October 24, 1995; it is
visible only in parts of Iran, India, and southeast Asia. There will not be
another solar eclipse visible from the United States for the rest of the
1990s at least (that is all the farther my reference books go).
There will be only one more total solar eclipse in the Western Hemisphere
this century: in 1997 one will cross Panama and northern S. America; I do
not recall the date.
