Long-period transiting exoplanets provide an opportunity to study the mass-radius relation and internal structure of extrasolar planets. Their studies grant insights into planetary evolution akin to the solar system planets, which, in contrast to hot Jupiters, are not constantly exposed to the intense radiation of their parent stars. Observations of secondary eclipses allow investigations of exoplanet temperatures and large-scale exo-atmospheric properties. In this short paper, we elaborate on, and calculate, probabilities of secondary eclipses for given orbital parameters, both in the presence and absence of detected primary transits, and tabulate these values for the forty planets with the highest primary transit probabilities.
