And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;
and upon the earth distress of nations
There's plenty of directions to the eclipse phenomenon...mostly up!
This site calls attention to patterns and peculiarities in the phenomenon of solar eclipses. Many of these patterns have not been considered elsewhere.
I use only accepted astronomical distances, calculations and factual historical references.
Ultimately, this work intends to direct eyes towards the heavens for the series of eclipses we are currently experiencing. These eclipses bear a message of cosmic reality, divine consciousness and eternal hope.

This website is for educational purposes. I hope that it is useful to people with many interests, whether scientific, historical or spiritual. It contains no requests for money. It contains no astrology. It is written with the hope of sharing reverence and awe for the work of God, who created the Eclipse Phenomenon.
Eclipse Judgment: A pattern of ongoing solar eclipses which mark with shadow paths the histories, deeds and destinies of the great empires of man. We primarily consider a 120 year time frame beginning in 1914 and ending in 2034, with particular focus on an exactly 19 solar year period between 3-20-2015 and 3-20-2034.
The eclipses within this 19 year period occur in profound relation to the upcoming 2,000th anniversary of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The eclipse's historical, geographic and numerical patterns present peculiar relations with the scientific truths which underlie their timing and appearance. These scientific truths themselves also contain extraordinary peculiarities .
This site describes the eclipses but resists direct interpretation of the individual phenomenon. In other words, ... I don't say " the reason this eclipse happened is because the people in this country are bad"...or things to that effect. Nevertheless I have my reasons to believe these are indeed Judgment Eclipses, and I don't believe one has to be a rocket scientist to come to such a conclusion..
I do outline verifiable associations and peculiarities of these eclipses. I also acknowledge their divine and earthly authenticity by calling them "judgment" eclipses. I fully expect this name to be justly given in relation to these eclipses and human history., and encourage all readers to come to terms with the Creator.
I use historic facts, centuries of scientific research, and, not least, publicly accessible path mapping. I use accepted astronomic measurements. All historical associations are well-known. I resist personal interpretations of each event, other than to claim they have meaning.
The maps are mostly from timeanddate.com which is an indispensable resource for cosmic researchers,history buffs and "numerica" ( number stories) aficionados.
Fred Espenak is probably the best-known authority on Eclipses in America. He has created a 5,000 year canon of all eclipses on Earth until the year 3000. If you are interested in the subject, you should consider getting those two volumes.
For the coming eclipses in the USA of 10-14-2023 and 4-8-2024 the best place I have found is eclipse2024.org, Dan Mcglaun has all the up to date maps and facts.
Dean Coombs at 1260d.com has good knowledge of Biblical numerical reality and a great perspective on eclipses.
By crediting these folks , I do not mean to imply that they would at all agree with my premise here, but either way, I certainly thank them for their contributions to the understanding of Eclipses.
I mostly only consider complete solar eclipses at this site. In a complete eclipse, the moon actually goes completely in front of the sun .This effect draws a specific narrow shadow path of totality or annularity across earth.. Complete solar eclipses are either Total ( you can look at them/ gets dark in the day/ we see the sun's corona) or Annular ( Ring of Fire) or Hybrid ( which is a mix of the two)...
very few partial or lunar eclipses described here. just a couple when i really have to make a point...
This site chronicles "complete" solar eclipses and lets them tell their own stories, through facts related to their timing, path locations, and relations. These facts may or may not lead to associations for the hearer. With the help of advancements in eclipse history and mapping, these associations are available to the public for the first time in history.
My primary role is to make known these associations. Inevitably, I also inject a few opinions, make more or less pertinent or amusing observations,, and even include Bible verses here and there. That's my style! Hopefully these personal efforts to highlight associations don't interfere with everyone's individual journey into the meanings available from consideration of eclipses. That meaning doesn't come from the author of this site, but rather from the Creator of this universe.
A couple of quotes about the idea of Eclipse Judgment in history :
"Biblical in origin, the expression “eclipse of God” refers to the Jewish concept of hester panim, the act of God concealing his face as a way of punishing his disobedient subjects. "
--as defined online by Princeton Daily review
"The English word eclipse comes from the Greek ἔκλειψις, ekleípō: disappearance, abandonment. A solar eclipse is the moment in which the sun disappears, abandoning the world. It’s like being forsaken by a god. The ancient Greeks thought of a solar eclipse as an act of abandonment, a terrible crisis and an existential threat. It meant that the king would fall, that terrible misfortunes would rain down on the world, or that demons had swallowed the sun." from Vox---Aug 2017
We are dealing with Cosmic Storytelling here, told by a Cosmic storyteller, one that lives outside of time, and maintains a full view of time.. Eclipses are perhaps the most profound pattern found in nature that asserts cosmic timekeeping in relation to the history of man. This pattern is quite real. The manifestation of the pattern is sublime, often surprising and bears a similarity to music. It is perhaps best listened to like music and not scanned like a textbook.. The Creator of these patterns is worthy of awe and reverence. It invites more investigation, and I pray such consideration goes to the Glory of God in these momentous times.
This website include details of the upcoming judgment eclipses, an overview of all eclipses between 1900 and 2037, considerations of the extraordinary nature of eclipses and their cycles, including:
There are also numerical, geographical and historical peculiarities. and potential significance in timings.. Plus, personal testimony and text of all my books.
There is love in the story of God. On a fundamental level, this seems to be a story about truth and gratitude. . It really only makes sense if you aren't afraid. Fear is conquered with faith.
But when these things begin to come to pass, look up, and lift up your heads; because your redemption draws nigh. Luke 21:28
This is a work in progress and is currently being updated as time permits.
If at all possible, eclipse information should be printed and the dates and paths of the most important eclipses remembered and shared.
This site, like everything in cyberspace, is at the mercy of the network, where all posted knowledge is at imminent risk of sudden and permanent obliteration.
I pray this work is to the Glory of God. His love and His wonders surround us. We must stay sane and strong. Look to the truth of Jesus.
Blessings on you all. Sand
You will find some on the internet claiming that solar eclipses aren't rare. The earth begs to differ. As usual, it's all a matter of perspective.
Above is a map of Total Solar Eclipses over an approximately 20 year span. You can see that total eclipses during this time frame are few, and (except for the eclipse swarm in Australia!)--far between. Only 15 total solar eclipses occur in the space of 20 years from 2015 to 2037 over the entire planet. Total solar eclipses occur about an average of once every 18 months, but they don't follow our calendar that exactly.. They are predictable phenomenon which vary in geographic appearance at different places on the globe. They operate under natural laws, established at the beginning of Creation.
They appear on average once every 375 years at any given place on earth, but the average is rarely the reality. For instance, Rome Italy has not had a total solar eclipse since 1386 AD, more than 600 years ago. Sacramento, California has not had a total solar eclipse since 1004 AD. On the other side of the coin, Carbondale, Illinois will experience their second total eclipse in 7 years on April 8, 2024. In a ten year span between 1948 and 1958, the city of Bangkok, Thailand experienced 4 complete ( total and ring of fire ) eclipses. I calculated the odds of that at 480 million to one, please correct me if my math is wrong.
We consider Annular eclipses as well as total, because they also involve the moon going directly in front of the sun. Commonly referred to as Ring of Fire eclipses, these happen at about the same ratio of frequency as Total eclipses, so the chance for any one place on earth to experience the path of either Total or Ring of Fire is about once every 200 years on average.
Generally, we do not consider partial solar eclipses or lunar eclipses at this site!
Neither leave definable paths and thus no definite associations can be drawn from them geographically.
Most humans live and die without ever seeing a complete total or ring of fire solar eclipse.
An eclipse path of totality varies between 50 and 150 miles wide, so only a small area of land sees a total solar eclipse during each event. Outside of that narrow strip of pure shadow, a much larger area experiences a partial eclipse.
The Eclipse Judgments we'll consider first are visible in the above map as crosses, or x's, on planet earth. They are seen as rather symmetrical x's in the above map. One over the USA, and one over the Mideast.
These marks signify the shadow paths of the moon across the face of earth, designating two great Empires of Humanity--one Eastern Hemisphere, one Western Hemisphere. These Empires were not merely physical and economic expansions. They are empires of the mind of man. They are dominant cultural, religious as well as political powers. They are both symbolic and literal empires.
The Judgment of these Empires is to be marked in time and symbolized by sets of solar eclipses profoundly placed at significant times and locations by an Almighty God.
We will also consider other Eclipses visible on this map during this time frame, and others not shown ( Annular Ring of Fire eclipses) which fit the pattern of significance. In fact, we'll consider all complete solar eclipse between the years 1914 and 2034 to try and discover if there are patterns of significance we can discover.
The sun is the same size as the moon in the sky. No, I did not say the sun is the same size as the moon. They are the same size in the sky-- a reality that's far more profound, because the reality is relational and demands our consideration, whether we give it such consideration or not.
How do we have a solar eclipse? The simple ( and truest) answer is that the moon goes in front of the sun for a bit. It's a matter of perspective. Our perspective is from the surface of earth, with a perfect view of this startling arrangement.
The only way we can have the kind of spectacular total solar eclipses we witness from planet Earth is by the "great coincidence"-- The Eclipse Miracle. The sun is the same size as the moon in the sky. The Sun is 400 times bigger than the Moon and also 400 times further away.
Intelligent beings were given this obvious proof that there is a Creator. There are other obvious proofs--the presence of life, biological diversity, light, water, spirit, thought, music, love and a Bible--what's on your list?
---the position of our earth in relation to the sun and the moon is a direct and irrefutable sign of the Design of an intelligent Creator, who established a beautiful home for a story.
The Solar Eclipse is many things, but it is also a fundamental illustration of Story
( and a mirror of the Story of Jesus). The model..."Once upon a Time...Then One Day...and in the end..." is the universal basic story line. In this instance, the Sun shines and gives light and life. Then one day the dark new moon appears to gobble it up. It gets dark. People and animals get scared. But the light returns and triumphs.
It is a story of complete significance, but only if we are grateful and can offer it meaning. Are we grateful for what we are given? Or do we dismiss it and everything else as meaningless coincidence?
What do we do with that truth? Does it matter to us?
God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also.
This link takes you to youtube.
A video about how the sun appears the same size as the moon in the sky; Imagine that!!
Also mentions unique properties of the earth and moon and sun which point towards a Designer.
It is a narrated version of the book I wrote and illustrated in 2017.
It's difficult to find any nation in history so perfectly trisected by solar eclipses geographically as the USA is by eclipses on 8-21-2017 , 10-14-2023 and 4-8-2024...over a 2422 day span.
A is for Alpha, Alef ( Hebrew), It's an A that is comprised of three lines, two x's.
The 8-21-2017 and 4-8-2024 are Hepton Total Eclipses, both on Monday.
map from 1260d.com
X is the Tav ( the last letter of original Hebrew).
Aug 2nd 2027 and March 20, 2034...also separated by a 2422 day span. Both are Hepton Cycle eclipses occurring on Mondays.
27 AD is one probable dating of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. 34 AD was Sir Isaac Newton's calculation of that event.
The Mideast eclipses occur on these 2,000th year anniversaries, but no solar eclipse can naturally occur on the exact day's anniversary. Jesus was crucified at Passover (which is at full moon). Solar eclipses happen at new moon.
Paleo-Hebrew was the script in which the Old Testament was written, not the modern script that is currently used
( which was being standardized around 200 B.C.) .
On the left is a Tav--the last letter (22nd) of the Hebrew alphabet-- essentially a cross or X in the above illustration.
On the right is the Paleo-Hebrew Aleph--the first letter of the alphabet. The Tav is being written by the shadow of the moon on both locations.
( where we get Alpha and our letter A)
is written by shadows of the 2017, 2023 and 2024 eclipses on the USA.
Reading right to left, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." --Rev.22:13...
go back and look at the Aleph ( A) over the USA mapped just above left in last section
It's a cross. It's also a Tav, the last letter, the 22nd, of the original Hebrew alphabet. It means truth. In the Greek alphabet, X is the symbol for the letter 'chi. ' Chi (or X) is the first letter in the Greek word for Christ and can stand in for the word "Christ", which is why people can write Happy Xmas. In the early days of the Christian church, Christians used the letter X as a secret symbol to indicate their membership in the church to others.
The above map illustrates the Total solar eclipses of 2017 and 2024 over America, both on Mondays, separated by a 2422 day (7 eclipse years) span.
The cross, the Tav, the X is then drawn upon the Middle East is written by eclipses in 2027 and 2034. The first line in 2027 shadows the birthplace of the mystery religions of Egypt, the sun gods of the Valley of the Kings in Luxor. It also passes over Mecca. The second eclipse in 2034 could be the most watched of all time, crossing the whole of Africa before departing to the east across Arabia, Iran and Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir, India, Tibet and ending in China-- a series of hugely important civilizations.
The above map illustrates the Total solar eclipses of 2027 and 2034 . Once again, both of these eclipses happen on Mondays, separated by a 2422 day (7 eclipse years) span.
Spain has not experienced a total solar eclipse in 128 years. Then it has three solar eclipses in less than 18 months. Beginning with the amazing Spanish eclipse of August 12 2026 cutting across the northern half of the nation, totality splitting metropolitan Madrid. 2026 is the 500th anniversary of the first importation of African slaves into the New World by Spanish colonialists. It is also the 200th anniversary of the last execution of the Spanish inquisition, the public garroting of schoolteacher Cayetano Ripoli
August 12 2026 solar eclipse path. Literally, the only other population the path touches is the city of Reykjavik as it skirts the western edge of Iceland. The path ends in the Spanish Isles just east of Spain. Spain was one of the greatest colonial empires of all time.
Directly across the Straits of Gibralter. The Great Valley of the Kings Total Solar Eclipse of August 2nd 2027 crosses extreme Southern Spain on its way to Egypt, Mecca and beyond.
The Spanish trinity of eclipses finishes with a ring of fire which ends in Portugal and Spain--the path connecting them with their colonial conquests in South America. ...also, 1-26-2028 is the 128th anniversary day of the signing of the peace treaty which ended the Spanish American War. Path crosses the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon rain forest before heading out over the Atlantic. This Eclipse happens on Australia Day--1-26-2028, the 240th anniversary of convict ships landing in Botany Bay in Sydney Australia ( see next eclipse in series, which happens in Australia 177 days later.
Here's a look at the interaction of all three. Madrid rests in the center convex, visibly an orange metropolitan area.
There are three main kinds of years. The solar year (which has a couple slight variations), the lunar year (which is cultural more than scientific but still maintains an ecliptic reality) and ,finally, the draconic (eclipse) year.
They depend on your point of reference, your perspective.
The solar year is the time it takes for the earth to revolve around the sun (365.25 days).
The lunar year is the time to complete twelve full cycles of the moon (355 days).
The Draconic Year is the cosmic perspective of timekeeping, the realignment of earth, moon and sun on an ecliptic plane. It is the eclipse year. It has 346.6 days in it.
By what some call extraordinary coincidence., all these completely unrelated years match in the Metonic Cycle every 19 years. Meaning you willthe same phase of the moon on a given date every 19 solar years. Eclipses also return on dates in a similar fashion, as we will see, There is no scientific reason for this alignment of different cosmic timekeeping, just as there is no scientific reason for the sun/moon alignment.
The Draconic year is the time taken for the Sun (as seen from the Earth) to complete one revolution with respect to the same lunar node (a point where the Moon's orbit intersects the ecliptic). This period is associated with eclipses: these occur only when both the Sun and the Moon are near these nodes; so eclipses occur within about a month of every half eclipse year.
There are two eclipse seasons every eclipse year. The average duration of the eclipse year is 346.62 days). The term “draconic” is connected with an idea of the ancients, according to which the sun and moon are devoured by a dragon during an eclipse.
The moon’s draconic period of revolution (the so-called draconic month) has important significance in the theory of solar and lunar eclipses. Since a Draconic Year is 346.6 days long. 7 Draconic Years equals 2422 days, half of which is 1211 days, or the time between "eclipse seasons". These two figures reappear regularly in the patterns we will explore on this website.
An eclipse season is one of only two periods during each year when eclipses can occur, due to variations in the angle of the moon in relation to the sun.. Each season lasts about 35 days and repeats just short of six months later, thus two full eclipse seasons always occur each year. That does not mean there are always eclipses during that time. Within a year that has eclipse, they often occur 177 days apart.
There are 40 to 41 different Saros Cycle Eclipses returning at any given moment in history. Each is different. Above, the various eclipses of a single Saros member( Saros cycle 136)painted one at a time every 18 years on the face of earth. The individual eclipse keeps returning to different locations in that timely fashion for more than a thousand years. It begins its eclipse life as a partial eclipse, gradually becomes a Ring of fire eclipse, turns into a a hybrid, and eventually matures into a series of total solar eclipses. Finally it fades in the same fashion until the cycle eventually dies. It mimics life and follows the idea of maximum Expression. Due to the elliptical nature of the orbits of Earth and the Moon, the exact duration and number of eclipses in a complete Saros is not constant. A series may last 1226 to 1550 years and is comprised of 69 to 87 eclipses, of which about 40 to 60 are central (i.e., total, hybrid or annular)
Here is Saros 136 over the course of about 160 years. Because of orbital realities, the Saros changes where its landing occurs on earth every 18 years. . There's a shifting regularity to the pattern. This is what makes eclipse prediction possible. You will notice the Aug 2nd 2027 Mideast Judgment in the top center of this illustration, basically in the middle of earth, with the center of the line, the Maximum Eclipse, at the Valley of the Kings in Luxor, Egypt.
Within the forty to forty one ongoing Saros solar eclipses, a pattern emerges of some eclipses occurring exactly 7 eclipse years apart from each other. That is 2422 days. Within that pattern, eclipses are spaced 7 eclipse seasons (1211 days) apart as well.
This is the Hepton Cycle.
Above, the extraordinary interaction of two Hepton eclipses- both occurring on Mondays- spaced 2422 days apart intersecting over the United States. The Hepton Cycle has been so little considered that there does not appear to be a single image illustrating its properties on the internet. It is described briefly in a few scientific documents and was apparently known to Mayan Astronomers..
The Hepton Cycle can be used for predicting series of solar eclipses with some 13 or 14 members which alternate in visibility between the northern and the southern hemisphere. The name was introduced by George van den Bergh (1951) and reflects its length of duration (i.e. seven eclipse seasons---3 and 1/2 years.). It is also 41 lunations long. Some members of a Hepton Cycle repeat on the same day of the week. This trait is visible in the Eclipse Judgments, where 7 significant eclipses spaced 1211 days apart all occur on a Monday, or Moon day, as of course, it refers to. it has been little considered likely because its leaves out many of the members of the various Saros. I will attempt to consider all the eclipse over a 22 year time frame, whether obviously related to the Hepton or not.
Three types of years:
Solar Year: The time it takes for the earth to revolve around the sun. 365.24 days
Lunar year: The time requires for 12 complete cycles of the moon. 354.3 days
Draconic Year: Time when the earth, moon and sun realign on an elliptic plane. 346.6 days
By extraordinary Cosmic arrangement, these years align with each other in varied and fairly precise arrangements, allowing for the science of eclipse prediction. This arrangement is most clearly visible in the Metonic Cycle.
Metonic cycle: a period of 19 years (235 lunar months), after which the new and full moons return to the same days of the year. For example, if you have a new moon on June 1st, then in 19 years you should usually have a new moon on June 1st too, with this date varying over the course of decades and centuries ( at some point it becomes June 2nd etc...) due to the slight offsets of calendar time and orbital reality.
In the Metonic cycle (approximately 6,940 days)...the Solar, Lunar and Draconic years align. Basis of the ancient Greek calendar ( and modern Bahai faith) and is still used for calculating movable feasts such as Easter. Eclipses can then repeat on basically the same day of the year every 19 years, though over time the date moves forward. It's relevant to eclipse cosmic timekeeping. For example, the time frame we will be most concerned with begins with a solar eclipse on the Spring Equinox March 20th, 2015 and ends with a solar eclipse on the Spring Equinox on March 20th, 2034.
There is no scientific reason these different cosmic years should align, and it is generally dismissed as a "coincidence"
Eclipses are most easily predicted through the Saros Cycle, which helps defines eclipses as individual personalities. Saros cycles are born as partial eclipses, mature into total eclipses, fade as partials and eventually die. They bear numbers for names, like 136 and 145.
A Saros Cycle is a period of exactly 223 lunar months, approximately 18 years and 11 days, used to predict eclipses. One Saros period after an eclipse, the Sun, Earth and Moon return to about the same relative geometry, a near straight line, and a nearly identical eclipse will occur, but at a different place on earth. A Saros Cycle is 19 eclipse years. There are about 40 Saros cycles currently occurring, about 26 of which are creating complete (total and annular ) solar eclipses. So we will meet about 26 personalities of various histories.
eclipses also happen to come in tribes, which we see in the little considered Hepton Cycle:
Hepton Cycle: Hepton means 7-sided. The Hepton Cycle is a pattern of 7 eclipses occurring within an almost 20 solar year period ( a 21 eclipse year period)- each eclipse occurring on the same day of the week ( the day of the week currently is Monday). It is a coordination of 41 lunar months and 7 eclipse years.
Hepton eclipses are spaced at 1211 day intervals.
1211 days is 7 eclipse seasons or 3 and 1/2 eclipse years.
An eclipse season is 173 days. An eclipse year is 346 days.
The Hepton forms time patterns of 7's. 7 eclipse seasons (3 and 1/2 years) and 7 eclipse years.The Hepton is not at work in all total solar eclipses, but about one fourth of them.
The 7 Hepton eclipses within the 21 eclipse year time frame form a nucleus of relation to other solar eclipses within the time frame. Hepton cycles overlap at beginning and end.The Hepton Cycle was first named by western science in the 1950's but was apparently known to Mayan astronomers.
Cosmic Timekeeping: The reflection of these Eclipse cycles in a consideration of history.
On Adolph Hitler's 134rd birthday, on th e strangely popular numeric of 4-20-a hybrid solar eclipse path just reaches the absolute western extremity of Australia. Totality only in Mangrove Bay and Marine Island Preserve. Path goes on over Timor and New Guinea.
177 Days after the Australia Day Ring of Fire in Spain, Australia is bisected by a Total Solar Eclipse with totality in Botany Bay and Sydney 240 and 1/2 years after convict ships first arrived. Also crosses south island of New Zealand. On Metonic Cycle of 19 years, exactly 19 years after 7-22-2009 Wuhan Eclipse which featured totality in Wuhan, China
With a Total Solar Eclipse Path that seems to define the southern borders of the once-great British Empire, a Hepton Monday eclipse travels across South Africa ( totality in Durban) and finishes almost precisely at the eastern border of Australia, at Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
7 eclipse years (2422 Days) after the Monday Hepton Australia/South Africa eclipse, another Monday eclipse--the last of the seven Hepton Mondays which began with the August 21 2017 USA judgment. Australia nearly perfectly bisected geographically. Totality in Gold Coast and North Island of New Zealand.
sort of a messy eclipse business going on in Australia! Clearly visible Alephs and Tavs in various mirror reflections. From 4-20 2023 to 7-13-2037 is 15 eclipse years total.
A hand-drawn graph, since no others apparently exist on the internet.. From top left, zigzagging we follow the eclipses from top left to bottom right. The Current Monday Hepton series is in yellow. The last Hepton series occurred on Wednesdays and began with the amazing Wednesday 8-11-1999 eclipse--detailed in "histories and peculiarities"--and concluded with the Pope Francis Birthplace 7-2-2019 eclipse seen at lower left. Hepton series eclipses overlap at beginning and end.
Once again, a hand-drawn graph. This time, depicting the 7 eclipses of the Monday Hepton Cycle which began with the USA Judgment eclipse of 8-21-2017 and concludes almost 20 years laterin Australia and New Zealand on 7-13-2037. Aside from the electoral college eclipse, all the other physically cross each others paths in alternating sequence. In other words, the first and 3rd eclipses cross each other with a spectacular symmetrical x in the USA. The fourth and sixth eclipses similarly cross each other off the coast of Egypt in the Red Sea. The 5th and 7th eclipses cross each other( though just barely) west of Brisbane, Australia. I can find no scientific reason for this particular crossing feature of the current Hepton Cycle, though there is definitely one repeating cross we will discuss later.
The USA divided in half on August 21, 2017. 7 months and 1 day after Trump inauguration. First day of the month of Elul, Hebrew year 5777. In Jewish tradition, the month of Elul is a time of repentance in preparation for the High Holy Days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
2422 days later, the USA is divided South to North, along with Mexico and extreme Eastern Canada. This occurs 8 days after Easter and 14 days before Passover.
Is it a cross or an X over the USA.?The X is The last letter of original Hebrew, Tav, the X is the Omega, the cancellation, the End point. X is the first Greek letter for Christ, the letter that can stand in for his name.
A "Ring of Fire"/ Sunflower annular eclipse passes over the western US on 10-14-23 before traveling to the Yucatan and crossing northern Brazil. 177 days before the spring total eclipse.
Total and Annular Solar Eclipses are rare. To have three completely trisecting the USA in 7 years is nothing short of incredible . One eclipse is past-the Great American Eclipse of Aug 21 2017, The next total solar eclipse in the USA arrives 2422 days later on April 8, 2024, It will be the only Total solar eclipse to touch all three nations in the 21st Century. The shadow paths of these two eclipses mark an X over America-centerpoint just south of Carbondale Illinois, specifically near Salem Road near east bank of
The total eclipses occur 7 eclipse years (draconic years -346 days) apart, both on Monday --Moon Day. A span of 2422 days. They are part of a unique series of eclipse groupings called a Hepton.
The exact midpoint of the Total eclipses is 1211 days. That date turned out to be Dec.14, 2020...It so happens there was another total solar eclipse then on the other end of the Americas, also a Hepton Eclipse, also on Monday. It coincided with a momentous day in the USA
The precise midpoint of the 2017 and 2024 USA eclipses was Dec.14, 2020. On that day,, between 10am and 5pm Eastern time, the Electoral College certifies Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as President and Vice-President of the United States of America.
The Hepton Cycle in action. A significant Monday Total Solar eclipse perfectly spaced between two Total Solar Monday eclipses.
7 eclipse seasons--1211 days-- in either direction brings you to the USA Eclipse Judgments of 8-21- 2017 and 4-8-2024 (which themselves are exactly 7 eclipse years apart).
7 eclipse seasons is 3 and 1/2 eclipse years ...
34 months to the day before USA Ring of Fire.
5,000 miles away, Dec. 14, 2020 Total Solar Eclipse--same hemisphere, same time, at the other end....full eclipse occurred between 9:30 am and 1pm Eastern Standard Time. Very little of the eclipse path passed overland, yet maximum eclipse did occur on land, as it happened. over Argentina near the town of Neuquen (a palindrome). If followed north, Longitude of maximum eclipse intersects with eastern Maine. Eclipse crosses Atlantic and stops just west of Namibia.
The April 8 2024 Eclipse will be the only one to cross Mexico, USA and Canada in the 21st Century. It occurs 8 days after Easter on a Monday. Texas will get its second solar eclipse in 6 months.
Here is the cross/ Tav / X / Omega formed by the upcoming 10-14-23 Ring of Fire and the 4-8-24 Total solar eclipses, 177 days apart. They cross in Texas somewhere in the hill country. Exact point where paths cross has yet to be posted on the internet.
And here is the Tav formed by the 2017 and 2024 Total USA Solar Eclipses, their intersection south of Carbondale Illinois, at Salem Road on the East edge of Cedar Lake.
Once again, the shadows of the three eclipses which occur within a 7 year span clearly write the letter A upon the United States. It is Alef, Alpha,. Perhaps those who have wisdom will reckon these days.
531 years and two days after Columbus discovered America, an annular eclipse creates a ring of fire from Oregon to Texas and then on to South America October 14th 2023, one of three solar eclipses in the USA in Seven Years
It enters Oregon--center of annularity coming ashore near Florence at 9:05 am. Oregon's second eclipse in 7 years. and heads across the Southwest USA . Crosses Gulf of Mexico, Yucatan, Central America, across the Amazon and exits into the Ocean at Natal, Brazil. Natal is Portugese for Nativity.
The only place in the USA where four states meet and form a cross, the sacred lands of the Four Corners region. The Eclipse path perfectly covers the Cross as it travels over some of the most beautiful lands on earth, including confluence of Green and Colorado Rivers, several national parks and centers of the lost Anasazi Civilization like Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde.
The eclipse exits the USA .
Exact centerline of annularity directly over
the city of Corpus Christi ( Body of Christ) -
The only city in America that bears such a name.
The eclipse then traverses the gulf of Mexico before crossing the Yucatan.
Passing directly over the straits of Gibralter, Totality hugging the north Coast of Africa before diving down Egypt over the Nile and the Valley of the Kings--into Saudi Arabia--including totality in Mecca...exiting into gulf of Oman through Yemen. Jerusalem sees 83% coverage
The Spring Equinox Eclipse of 2034. From the Coast of South America across the Slave Coast of Africa to Egypt, scraping north edge of Medina as it crosses Arabia, onward through Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Tibet and ending in China. Jerusalem will see 74% coverage of the sun.
Map from 1260d.com website. The epicenter of the Cross is just to the southeast of Luxor, the spiritual home of the Pharoahs. Almost directly on the Tropic of Cancer. The pattern, as in the USA eclipses is the cross, or the X---Tav in Hebrew, Christ in Greek.
To show the true rarity of total solar eclipses. A 20 year span. The 2017 USA eclipse X stands in similarity to the amazing X created by the Mideast eclipses (USA ring of Fire is not pictured). The symmetrical x's created by the USA and Mideast Judgment eclipses are unique, as visible here and also in historical review, as I will try and show in another page.
Maximum Expression of the enemy of God, nature and mankind. Expressed through the network that imitates and mocks the Creator as it asserts power over every soul, creates total deception and defiles our natures. That network clearly seeks to come inside us. Total technological subservience and a descent into unreality looms. God will not allow permanent and universal slavery.
"It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones." --Jesus said in Luke 17:2...
Jesus said, “Leave the children alone, and do not forbid them to come to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14...
There is only so much evil God can tolerate.
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness.
The beast system has arrived. Totalitarian, supremely invasive and demanding, cashless, merciless, hateful of believers and the innocent. The full flowering of the Opposition of God reveals itself. This is the sign of the time. There are not centuries left. This should be a relief. It should also be a call to repentance.
"a few more years of hard work, then a thousand years of happiness."--When the Levee Breaks--Bob Dylan
Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. --Rev 14:12
In this section, I quickly mention the eclipses we will focus on at 2014 to 2034 Up Close of the website.. Here is a list eclipses in a 22 year span ( which includes a 19 year bracket of Spring Equinox Eclipses)...but first we must mention, the famous Blood Moon Tetrad of Lunar Eclipses.
A phenomenal set of lunar eclipses which occurred on both high holy days of Judaism --Passover and Feast of Tabernacles--in both 2014 and 2015 should be taken into account. We attempt that on another page .
Between the tetrads occurred the first Solar Eclipse of our time table, the Spring Equinox eclipse of 2015
Beginning at The North Pole Eclipse on 3-20-2015 ,one of the least viewed eclipses in modern history ( it traveled almost entirely over uninhabited regions). Peaking at The Mideast/ Africa/ Central Asia eclipse of 3-20-2034-potentially what will be the most viewed Eclipse of all time--.Concluding with 7-13-2037 eclipse in Australia and New Zealand.
The Spring Equinox eclipses are separated by exactly 19 solar years. the larger time frame is 22 years.
Below is a Complete list of all Total Solar eclipses ( I do not consider partial eclipses) on planet earth in this Time Frame. Please go to to 2034 up 2014 close for more detailed information.
All 7 Hepton Cycle Monday Judgment Eclipses are starred and in bold. These eclipses are spaced in intervals of 1211 days, which is 7 eclipse seasons or 3 and 1/2 eclipse years.

Eclipse occurred exactly 11 eclipse years to the day before Dec.30 2019, the day China announced they were investigating a new illness in Wuhan ...we will consider the Wednesday series in the histories and peculiarities page.
Judgment Eclipses centered over important locations at important times, surrounding all possible 2,000th year Anniversaries of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Lord Jesus Christ.
Ring of Fire Eclipses occurs when the apparent diameter of the moon appears slightly smaller than the apparent diameter of the sun due to the orbital irregularity.
When the moon passes in front of the sun, the observer witness the "ring of fire", the annular eclipse. There are several of significance in this same time frame ( and one 6 years before).
Below is a complete list of all Annular Eclipses in the time frame of the Eclipse Judgments.
( at the end I include an unusual one outside the time frame)
There are 14 Annular Eclipses in 20 years.
Of these, I consider 7 to be Judgment Eclipses.
I will detail the starred judgment eclipses in a later section.
