The next total eclipse of the sun visible in the USA is on August 21, 2017.

Hopefully during the first year of the second term of the President elected in November 2012.

Looks like there will be an annular eclipse next year on May 20, 2012.

The next eclipse after that, a partial one, will be October 23, 2014.

After that no eclipses until the date you mention.
