Stay alive through 2045 for the ‘Greatest American Eclipse’

Six minutes 4 seconds totality will come to 10 U.S. States

America is living through a golden age of solar eclipses, but the longest of the 21st century comes on August 12, 2045.

On that day the incredible Solar Saros 136 will throw a 6 minutes+ totality across California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. It will then be the turn of the eastern Caribbean, and the north-east coast of South America via Haiti, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Guyana, French Guiana, Suriname and Brazil.

In the U.S. that means totality for the likes of Reno, Salt Lake City, Colorado Springs, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Tampa, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale and Miami—with totality in the U.S. maxing out at 6 minutes 4 seconds in Port Saint Lucie, Florida.

Everyone else will see a huge partial solar eclipse.
