So what's next?

It appears from the following article that there is only one total solar eclipse between now and the one in the United States in 2024.

http://www.news18.com/news/world/total- ... 97463.html

The 2019 total eclipse in Chile looks looks great, particularly because the weather is almost certain to be clear. However, unless you can speak fluent Spanish, communication is a problem if you travel on your own. Few people in this country speak English. Traveling on a group eclipse tour, from what I've seen so far on the Internet, includes visiting a lot of non-astronomy tourist attractions for extremely expensive seven-to-ten day tours.

I hope one of these companies will offer an all-astronomy tour with opportunities to do nighttime viewing as well as see the eclipse:

Correction: In addition to the July 2, 2019 total solar eclipse that passes through northern Chile, there are three other total solar eclipses between now and April 8, 2024, the date of the next total solar eclipse in the U.S. These three eclipses are clearly indicated here: https://www.timeanddate.com/eclipse/list.html
