Next Total Solar Eclipse in New Zealand.

New Zealanders will have to wait until 22 July 2028 for a total eclipse of the Sun.  Even then it will be very low in the sky.  The path of totality passes over the South Indian Ocean, but this time enters north Australia and passes diagonally across the continent with Sydney on the centre line.  Having crossed the Tasman Sea, the path crosses the Southern part of the South Island with Dunedin in the centre of the path.  The eclipse will occur there at about 4.15 pm and the Sun will only be about 8.5° above the horizon.

There are two further total eclipses for New Zealand within a decade, in 2037 and 2038. In addition annular eclipses cross the country in 2035, 2042 and 2045. Solar eclipses in New Zealand to 2050.
