We feel a little snubbed. March 29th's total solar eclipse will be skipping North and Central America for Brazil, Turkey, Libya, Egypt, and onward through to Mongolia. A much wider partial-eclipse band will cut through Africa, Europe, and central Asia. If you're an American thinking you'll wait for the next one, keep your passport renewed or be patient  -- the next total eclipse to pass through the United States won't be until 2017.
