On January 26, I posted a blog I called “When did your state last experience totality?” It proved quite popular, so I thought I would bookend the question with this list that shows the next time (after the August 21, 2017 event) that any part of each state (and the District of Columbia) will experience totality.

Once again, two dedicated eclipse aficionados — Canadian Stephen Bedingfield and John Tilley of England — helped me out by correcting a few mistakes I’d included. This time, however, I asked them to look at the list before I posted it here. I offer my sincere thanks to both of them for fact-checking my dates and helping me look smarter than I actually am.

I hope you enjoy this little compilation. And please make plans now to experience totality during the August 21 eclipse.
