Spain to witness three solar eclipses consecutively. 

Earlier this month, the United States got front row seats to witness this year's Total Solar Eclipse while the rest of the world watched it online.

Experts had urged people to witness the "Great American Eclipse" this month as they revealed that the rare celestial event would not occur in the country for another decade, Forbes reported.

So where will the next solar eclipse occur?

Well, crazily enough, the next location to witness a solar eclipse will be lucky enough to witness the celestial occurrence not once, not twice but three times!

That lucky country is Spain. But it gets even crazier than three solar eclipses. The country's two major cities — Madrid and Barcelona — will see none of them.

Here's the breakdown of Spain's trio of spectacular solar eclipses:

Total Solar Eclipse 2026

This event will occur on August 12 in northern Spain but people in Greenland and Iceland may also get a glimpse of the solar eclipse.

The east of Spain, including Valencia, may not be ideal for this pre-sunset eclipse, as it will occur 10 degrees above the west in northwest Spain and two degrees from Mallorca.

Galicia and northern Spain will offer great views, but clear skies are most likely on the plains, making Palenica, Burgos and Valladolid the best places to visit to have this experience.

Total Solar Eclipse 2027

The Total Solar Eclipse of 2027 will occur on August 2 southern Spain but you may also get a glimpse in countries including Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Somalia and the British Indian Ocean Territory.

Luxor, Egypt will offer a nearly clear sky for six minuted and 23 seconds, but you may have to pay a hefty price to witness it there as the temperatures may reach about 41° C.

However, Spain's totality for the post-breakfast solar eclipse is expected to be around 37 degrees up in the sky, halfway up in the east, with totality peaking at four minutes 39 seconds in Tarifa.

Annular Solar Eclipse 2028

This solar eclipse event will occur on January 26 in southern Spain but may also be witnessed in Galapagos, Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, French Guiana and Portugal.

This "ring of fire" lasting up to 7 minutes and 10 seconds in Spain will mostly occur at sea, about 8 degrees above the west with a spectacular view from the Portuguese border to Tarifa. 

This will be a pre-sunset eclipse.

This might ignite a strong desire to relocate to Spain among eclipse chasers but not for long. After the Spanish trio, Australia is set to witness four Total Solar Eclipses in 2028, 2030, 2037 and 2038.
