Mapping every total solar eclipse in your lifetime

Entered in Data Visualization


The Washington Post mapped the path of every total solar eclipse in the previous 100 years and the next 100 years ahead of 2017's total solar eclipse.


The interactive graphic allowed readers to enter their birth year to see how many more total solar eclipses would appear in their lifetime and the exact path each would take.


The result was an engrossing interactive graphic that became The Washington Post's biggest social driver for coverage of the total solar eclipse.
