A total solar eclipse will occur on August 12, 2045. It will be the fourth longest eclipse of the 21st century with a magnitude of 1.0774 occurring just one hour before perigee.[1] It will be visible throughout much of the continental United States, with a path of totality running through northern California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. The total eclipse will be greatest over the Bahamas, before continuing over the Virgin Islands, Hispaniola, Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, and Brazil.

The path of totality of this eclipse will be seen over many major cities, including Reno, Salt Lake City, Colorado Springs, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa, Nassau, and Santo Domingo.[2] It will also be the second total eclipse visible from Little Rock in about 21 years.[2] Totality will last for at least 6 minutes along the part of the path that starts at Camden, Alabama, crossing Florida and ending near the southernmost Bahama Islands. The longest duration of totality will be 6 minutes 5.5 seconds at , which is over the Atlantic Ocean east of Fort Lauderdale and south of Freeport, Bahamas.[2]

The Solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 will have a very similar path of totality over the USA, about 250 miles to the northeast, also crossing the USA's Pacific coast and Atlantic coast.[3]
