A total solar eclipse will happen on July 16, 2186. It will pass over the southern Galápagos Islands (with a maximum eclipse of 4 minutes occurring over the southern tip of Española Island), northern South America (Ecuador including Bogota for 4 minutes and 50 seconds), central Venezuela, and northern Guyana (with a maximum eclipse of 7 minutes 4 seconds just north of Anna Regina).[1]

This will be the longest total solar eclipse between the dates of 4000 BC and 8000 AD. It will last a maximum of 7 minutes, 29 seconds. The longest historical total eclipse lasted 7 minutes 28 seconds on June 15, 744BC.[2]
