[image-1]If you were outside in Charleston that time the moon stepped in front of the sun for a minute this afternoon, you know it was a pretty special experience. From the temperature dropping to obscene chants directed at our life-giving star, it was quite a time to be alive in the Holy City.

Well here’s good news: The next path of totality near Charleston comes in just 34 short years, on March 30, 2052.

Unlike today’s eclipse path, which stretched from one corner of the state to the other, the path of the March 2052 eclipse will barely clip the Lowcountry. The direct path will sweep across the southeast from Panama City Beach, Florida to Savannah, Georgia, with Charleston getting in on the action as well.

So, just keep those glasses around ’til next time.
