The 2024 solar eclipse has taken North America by storm, but not everyone was lucky enough to be in the path of totality.

Fortunately, many will get another chance to watch as the Moon passes between the Sun and Earth, you’ll just have to be patient!

According to the Canadian Space Agency, Hamilton and Belleville, Ontario, Montreal and Sherbrooke, Quebec, Fredericton and Miramichi, New Brunswick, Alberton and Summerside, PEI, Meat Cove Nova Scotia and Gander NL will be able to see it in 2024, but don’t fret if you’re western Canada.

The next total solar eclipse will occur in 2044 and a different set of cities, provinces and states will experience a temporary blackout.

Think you can wait it out? Consider heading to the Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, Alberta, or British Columbia if you’re in Canada!

As per the map above, Lethbridge, Calgary, Red Deer and Edmonton in Alberta, as well as Dawson’s Creek and Fort St. John in BC will be the places to be come Tuesday, August, 23rd, 20 years from now and you will not want to miss it!

“An eclipse is a wonder to behold,” says The Canadian Space Agency. 

“During a total solar eclipse, the path of totality is a narrow corridor approximately 100 to 115 km wide where the Sun appears to be completely covered by the Moon for a short period of time (between 2 and 3 minutes). This is the most spectacular part of the eclipse, as those who are lucky enough to be in this corridor are able to see the Sun’s corona, the chromosphere, prominences and streamers.”

Impressive, right?

Until then, enjoy the live streams, photos, and – if you’re on the eastern side of the country – the eclipse itself.

They certainly don’t happen every day – though we wish they did.
