When is the next solar eclipse in your country?

A look at the upcoming major solar eclipses around the world.

On Monday, the United States will witness its first total solar eclipse in about four decades. The event will occur when the moon completely covers the sun for a few minutes, darkening the sky.

Total solar eclipses are not rare and occur about every 18 months.

While Monday's eclipse will primarily be visible only in North America, other parts of the world will also witness solar eclipses as early as February 2018.
