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.
All three methods of calendar timekeeping (all based on orbital reality) --Solar, Lunar and Ecliptic (Draconic) years- align every 19 years or about 6940 days. This typically creates solar eclipses on the same day of the year every 19 years for about 57 years.
Also the Saros Cycle of eclipses has its own coincidental alignments which produce the eclipses every 19 Draconic years.
Solar Year= 365.24 days. = 6,939.6 days =19 years
Lunar Year= 354.3 days = 6,939.68 days = 235 months= 19 years with solar calendar
- a difference of only hours, every 19 years.
That means if it is a new moon today, 19 years from now it will be a new moon on the exact same day.
That's cool enough, but The Eclipse calendar also aligns.
An eclipse year is 346.6 days where sun, moon and earth line up on ecliptic plane
255 draconic months = 6,939.11 days. Exactly 20 eclipse years(40 eclipse seasons)
There's less than half a day difference every 19 years between Draconic, lunar and solar calendars!
Not only is the sun the same size as the moon in the sky, but three different calendars all line up to allow for perfection in human observation and prediction of time and eclipses.
The Saros Cycle also aligns, in this same pattern...223 Lunar months align with 19 exact Draconic years which is 18 years 11 days and 8 hours (solar time)...
Hepton means 7-sided. This cycle was first chronicled in modern times by George Van Den Bergh in the 1950's.
7 Total Solar eclipses linked by identical 1211 day spacings .
1211 days is 7 eclipse seasons-- eclipse seasons are 177 days apart...The Hepton Judgment cycle covers an almost 20 year span from Aug 21st 2017 to July 13, 2037. (21 Eclipse Years)
here are the 7 members...each 1211 days apart from each other.
USA Aug 21st, 2017--Saros 145
Electoral College Dec 14, 2020---Saros 142
USA April 8, 2024--Saros 139
Valley of the Kings August 2, 2027---Saros 136
British Empire Nov. 25 2030---Saros 133
Civilization Equinox Mar.20.2034--Saros 130
Australia July 13, 2027---saros 127
An extraordinary Reality.
Two Total solar eclipses spaced exactly 7 eclipse years apart (2422 days) intersect over the New Madrid fault in the USA.
The first eclipse Aug.21, 2017
...the second April 8, 2024....
Intersection of cross occurs over New Madrid Fault, an area known as "little Egypt" ( not far from Cairo, Illinois)
There is lots of info about these eclipses here at several places including The Eclipse judgment, Hepton Cycle and American Judgment
Two Total solar eclipses spaced exactly 7 eclipse years apart (2422 days) intersect over Egypt The first eclipse Aug.2, 2027...the second March 20, 2034 ...linked in Hepton Cycle to USA eclipses.
The shape of this X is almost identical in size and intersection as the American Tav. ( they intersect at the same 66 degree angle)..all of the eclipses are linked in the Hepton Cycle.
The first eclipse crosses directly over the Straits of Gibralter, the Valley of the Kings in Luxor Egypt and Mecca. The second eclipse occurs on the Spring Equinox, the first day of the calendar year for many cultures, and crosses an amazing array of ancient and modern civilizations before ending in China.
Two x's in the course of 17 years, one over America and the other over Egypt
Now look at the eclipse patterns in regards to the first and last letters of the original Hebrew Alphabet...literally the Alpha and the Omega.
The most important and the most primary of shapes in human communication are written on th two hemispheres in the Judgment Series Eclipses.
See American Aleph #8
Almost completely ignored by science, the Hepton Cycle links 7 eclipses in patterns of 7 eclipse seasons and 7 eclipse years all of which generally appear on the same day of the week.. First chronicled in modern times by Dutch Astronomer George van Den Bergh, it was apparently also know to the Mayans. This website is the first place to fully chronicle modern Hepton groupings in a public format, chronicling its manifestations both currently and historically.
The hepton creates patterns of 7's and 3 and 1/2's...both time frames are crucial in Bible prophecy as writtejn in books of Daniel and Revelations. I do not attempt to explicate those prophecies,
The USA is actually crossed by 3 complete solar eclipses over the course of 7 years--the two Total eclipses of 8-21-2017 and 4-8-2024 already mentioned--and a Ring of Fire eclipse from Oregon to Texas on 10-14-2023, two days after Columbus 531 year Anniversary of discovery of America,
Taken together, the three paths clearly illustrate an A or Alpha, or Hebrew Aleph over the USA.
Eclipses have an individuality, a lifetime and a personality. The Saros Cycle contains about 40 members at any one time in History, about 26 of which are creating complete ( Total or Ring of Fire) solar eclipses eclipses. The saros are given numbers as names. They recur on different places on the planet efvery 18 years and 11 days and 8 hours ( 19 eclipse years) or up to 1500 years. They typically begin life as a partial eclipse, mature into a complete eclipse and then fade away into a partial again before dying... .
Spain is crossed by three eclipses in 18 months beginning with a Total eclipse in 2026, the 500th Anniversary of Spain's first importation of African slaves to the New World.
The greatest Saros of them all? Saros 136 created the longest Total eclipses of the 20th and 21st Centuries (and the longest in 800 years)with extraordinary paths across the heart of human civilization and mysterious places. The Einstein Eclipse of 1919, Wuhan on 7-22-2009, Easter Island 7-11-1991, and the Valley of the Kings on 8-2-2027 are just some of its most fascinating manifestations.
From 2023 to 2038, Australia is swarmed by solar eclipses, criss-crossed by no less than 5 eclipses, including over Botany bay and Sydney, where the first convict ships landed.
October 14, 2023. On the Columbus Day metonic 531 years and two days after Columbus arrived in America.
Could there be a more elegant line drawn between the two continents?
Bisecting the western US, totality entering south of Salem Oregon, crossing the Four Corners and exiting the nation at Corpus Christi ("Body of Christ"), Texas (one of only 4 places named that in the world). Crossing the Yucatan and much of Central America.Crossing Northern South America. Exiting Brazil at the city of Natal, translated "Nativity" in Portugese. Exactly 555.5 eclipse years after Mayan Apocalypse Eclipse of August 8, 1496
Two sets of Hepton Eclipses define the American century.
The first set...a cross country USA eclipse on June 8, 1918...seven eclipse years ( 2422 days) later, an eclipse cut across the Northern US from Minnesota through New York City.
The second set...a cross country USA eclipse very similar path from 1918 on August 21, 2017 ...seven eclipse years ( 2422 days) later,, an eclipse cuts south to north through New York State ( the "empire state")...
Between the 1918 and 2017 USA cross country eclipses is 36, 234 days.
Between the 1925 and 2024 USA eclipses is 36,234 days...
Between each matching member of the pairs is 99 years and 74 days...or 1190 months and 13 days...
The True American Century written in eclipses, bracketed by 7 year eclipse pairs.
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.
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 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
The Parameters, the brackets, of the great eclipse judgment of history are two Spring Equinox eclipses separated by exactly 19 years. March 20, 2015 saw the great North Pole Equinox, where the path of totality ended directly at the North Pole ( an occurrence which may have never happened before)...19 solar years later, on March 20, 2034, an extraordinary eclipse cuts across Africa, Egypt , Arabia, Persia, Afghanistan, Kashmir and China---one month before the last possible 2,000th anniversary of the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ ( April 23rd, 34 AD according to Isaac Newton.
Jesus of Nazareth was killed by crucifixion almost certainly between the years of 27 and 34 AD. We rapidly approach the 2,000th anniversary of that happening.
Why is that important?
The period of a thousand years is mentioned importantly in reference to Jesus and God.
"A thousand years is like unto a day" 2 Peter 3:8
(as well as Psalm 90)
Also, Jesus reigns on earth after his return for a millennium ( Revelation 20)..
there are interesting total solar eclipses during the upcoming time frame.
Famously, Total lunar eclipses landed on the high holy days of Judaism in both 2014 and 2015...that is, on both Passover and Feast of tabernacles. They sandwiched the total solar eclipse on the Spring Equinox March 20. 2015.
In the current Metonic 19 year period which contains the anniversary of the Crucifixion/Resurrection, a Tetrad of Lunar eclipses reappears in 2033 and 2034 on the High Holy Days. The Passover eclipse of April 14, 2033 would be 2,000 years and 11 days after the Crucifixion if the Lord died on April 3, 33AD ( the traditional date)..The Passover eclipse of April 3/4 2034 is potentially on the exact 2001st anniversary .
These Blood Moon Tetrads similarly sandwich a Spring Equinox Total Solar Eclipse on March 20, 2034
These type of lunar eclipse Tetrads reappear in cycles every 600 years and last for about 200 years, though their appearance on the High Holy Days is a rarer phenomenon.
Tetrads occurred in 1949/50 after the founding of the modern Jewish State of Israel and also 1967/68 following the 6 Day War.
They also occurred in 1493, after the expuilsion of the Jews from Spain and concurrently with the "discovery" of America.
Perhaps at the top of the list of odd numeric synchronicity: The Metonic Cycle is an exact 19 solar year cycle which connects the solar, lunar and ecliptic calendars due to an extraordinary and seemingly incongrous correlation of cosmic rhythms..
Simultaneously, a Saros Cycle is exactly 19 Draconic ( Eclipse) years.
The number 19 has interesting repetitions in the Koran. It is also essential to the Bahai faith.
Perhaps the most important scientific eclipse of all time was in 1919 ( 5-29) where Einsteins Theory of Relativity was proven by simultaneous observation from Africa and South America.
Eclipses tend to repeat on the same date every 19 years for 57 years, then do an 8 year leap, and then another 57 year run on a slightly later date ( one or two days)...
The Metonic Reality has been little considered by scientists, or anyone esle for that matter.
4 days before the most generally accepted 2,000th Anniversary of the death of Jesus Christ on 4-3-2033, a total solar eclipse perfectly straddles the Bering Strait, giving totality to both hemispheres at the same time at the only place this could possibly happen.
Both Russia and the USA having a total eclipse simultaneously.
No other nations will experience the path of totality.
Numeric oddity of 3-30-33.
Exactly One Lunar year before Spring Equinox Eclipse of 3-20-2034 ends the great 19 year Judgment Metonic, bringing to a close all reasonable possible 2,000 year anniversaries of the Crucifixion/Resurrection.
The only other solar eclipse in 2033 is a partial on 9-23
Ring of Fire Eclipse. Judgment Eclipse. On the 15th anniversary of the greatest recorded Tsunami in human history ( Dec.26, 2004), an annular solar eclipse followed the Tsunami path backwards--linking the epicenter of the great 9.1 magnitude earthquake in northern Sumatra to the devastated island of Sri Lanka and onward to Arabia.
The birth and death of John F. Kennedy are marked in perpetuity by side by side solar eclipses on his birth and death days, 177 days apart. . They also occurred during his lifetime and briefly after his death.
Kennedy was exactly 49 eclipse years old when he was murdered.
Other eclipses also occur during his lifetime of great interest.
The death and birth of Abraham Lincoln are also marked by closely linked solar eclipses that happened during his lifetime--one of many odd synchronicities in his life and the life of Lincoln
His death day of April 14/15 1865 is exactly 57 years ( 3 Metonic cycles of 19 years) before the sinking of Titanic on April 14/15...
At 6 minutes and 39 seconds, the July 22nd 2009 Total solar eclipse has the longest duration of any solar eclipse of the 21st Century.
Ten years before the Great Pandemic begins and the world changes forever; a change perhaps more drastic than in all the thousands of years prior. The Total eclipse of 2009 crosses Wuhan, almost perfectly in the centerline shadow of totality.
The eclipse then goes over the great city of Shanghai, the most populated city in the world. Shanghai becomes the largest city in the history of the world to experience a total eclipse.
Prior to that, the eclipse crosses India. Totality at the Taj Mahal. The Eclipse begins just offshore of India and heads straight northwest across India through hugely important cities--totality in Surat, Indore, Jabalpur,Allahabad ( City of God), Varanasi. Patni etc... before almost completely covering the mysterious mountain kingdom of Bhutan in Totality 8 weeks before a major earthquake., It traverses Tibet (95% in Lhasa)...It then heads to China.
The great Saros cycle 136, which returns for The Valley of the Kings eclipse on 8-2-2027
The Solar beginning of the Judgment Time Frame begins on The Spring Equinox March 20, 2015. matched by an eclipse exactly 19 years later in 2034. Total Eclipse. Spring Equinox. Visible from Svalbard Islands, one of the northernmost inhabited places on earth.. Eclipse ended immediately at the North Pole, but it seems no one was there to see it...according to online accounts, no one actually witnessed the eclipse when it reached the Pole.
There are no accounts of an eclipse ever ending directly at the North Pole, nor any calculations as to wjhen such an unusual event could ever happen again.
The 3-20-2015 eclipse was witnessed by a few thousand souls at most. It occurred at the midpoint of the Blood Moon Tetrads of 2014/2015 and two weeks before the lunar eclipse of Passover, April 4 2015--also the 47th Anniversary of the execution of Martin Luther King.
7-2-2019 Total Eclipse--Pope Francis Eclipse. 2302 days after his ordination as Pope, Eclipse crosses South America (Totality entering at La Serena, Chile...totality over San Juan, Argentina) and ends at sunset near Pope Francis birthplace of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Leaves nation at Dolores (sorrows), Argentina ---
The last solar eclipse before the beginning of the pandemic. The next would be on the Summer Solstice Pandemic Ring of Fire Eclipse of June 21, 2020--exactly one lunar year later.
Francis is clearly one of the most important figures in the world, especially given his active participation in our current direction.
Ring of Fire. Judgment Eclipse. Summer Solstice. Father's Day. Across the continent of Africa across the Red Sea through Yemen, Oman, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Tibet exiting through China and Taiwan. 83% annularity in Wuhan , 70% in Mecca, 94% in Delhi, 35% in Jerusalem
3 great eclipses on the August 21st metonic in 103 years.
August 21st 1914 World War One Eclipse...Covered in depth in the main history section, a total solar eclipse divides several European Empires ( almost perfectly splitting Eurasia) in the first weeks of fighting of World War One. Map above
August 21st, 1933 Jerusalem Ring of Fire ...as the Nazis consolidate power, a Ring of Fire eclipse over Jerusalem and Mesopotamia
August 21st 2017 Great American Eclipse
The two total eclipses of 8-11-1999 and 3-29- 2006 are spaced 2422 days apart. They are Hepton eclipses exactly 7 eclipse years apart and both occurring on Wednesday.
The intersection of those two great paths occurs over Northern Turkey about 200 miles east of Ankara apparently in the region of Tokat, an ancient city from the time of the Hitittes, which was also a Roman stronghold and had a thriving Armenian Christian community until the genocide during WWI.
These exact same Saros eclipses--145 and 139-- create the same cross over the USA in 2017 and 2024.
The path heads on to bisect Georgia 20 months before its war with Russia then crosses Kazakhstan, including Totality at Capital of Nur-Sultan, formerly known as Astana.
Between 1948 and 1965, 5 solar eclipses converge over Southeast Asia...including splitting Korea in two north and south a year before their war, and dividing Vietnam several times. The city of Bangkok, Thailand experiences a direct solar eclipse 4 times in 12 years, an almost impossible mathematical reality.
One of the most clearly ominous eclipses in modern history. World War's first battles occurred in early August...The Path splits eastern Europe and Russia and western Europe -Saros Cycle 124 ( which finishes 900 years of complete eclipses on 1986)
60 hours after the sinking of the Titanic, a total/Hybrid eclipse occurs . 90% coverage at Southampton, where Titanic launched a week before. Path goes just south...35% coverage at the site of the disaster southeast of Newfoundland. 18% coverage at intended harbor of New York.
Largely considered the most famous and symbolic disaster in human history. The sinking itself occurs on the 57th anniversary ( April 14/15, 1865 )of the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln.
The hybrid eclipse path cuts a foreboding shadow across Europe two years before she will be engaged in the worst war in the history of man up unto that point. Tiny stripe of Totality divides metropolitan Paris. Larger path of complete ring of fire annularity goes through France, Belgium, Germany, the northern Baltic, and Russia.
As the Nazis seize control in Germany, at the peak of a worldwide depression, a Ring of Fire chooses the great Metonic date of Monday August 21 1933 to carve a path of Annularity across the Mideast--Palestine, Jordan, Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan-- then travels over India and Southeast Asia, total annularity in Jerusalem, Baghdad ( Babylon), Amman, Gaza, Alexandria ---path cuts through Iran, Afghanistan, Northern India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia before finally ending at .the east coast of Australia
On John F. Kennedy's second birthday (he was born 5-29-1917), Einstein's theory of Relativity is finally proved by observation of the total solar eclipse. Two teams, one in Brazil and one in Africa take the measurements that prove it correct. The longest eclipse duration (at nearly 7 minutes) since 1416 AD. Saros Cycle 136, one of the stars of the Judgment series--soon to be reappearing notably in MIdeast valley of the kings eclipse on August 2nd 2027
177 days after 5-29-1919 Eclipse--- on 11-22-1919, exactly 44 years before JFK assassination, thereby making the dates of JFK's birth and death commemorated in successive eclipses during his second year on earth,.
. Ring of Fire Eclipse. Texas, the state where JFK would be murdered 44 years later is the place where the eclipse begins. Including total annularity in Stonewall Texas, home to a then 10 year old Lyndon Baines Johnson, who would replace JFK as president. Total annularity in the capital of Austin and in Houston.--path crosses almost entire island of Cuba, including Havana, with which JFK's destiny would become so intertwined , then across Haiti, St. Georges's , Kingston, Port of Spain--then across the Atlantic to Africa, where the path reached the countries of Senegal and Mali, both of whose presidents visited Kennedy's White House. Eclipse ended after totality in ancient city of Timbuktu. Saros Cycle 141, which reappears in Australia Day Spanish Judgment of 1-26-2028
The First four solar eclipses of the 20th Century all appeared on unusually important days.
5-28-1900 ( pictured above) --the first eclipse of the 20th century and the JFK birthday Metonic...he was born 17 years and one day after. Amazing path connects The Spanish and Aztec Empire, The USA--99% at first colonial settlement of Jamestown and at Kitty Hawk NC, where the first airplane would fly 2 and 1/2 years later...bisects Spain and Portugal, brings totality to Tripoli and ends at sunset just west of the Valley of the Kings in Luxor Egypt
11-22-1900--eclipse on JfK death day
5-18-1901--eclipse on Mount Saint Helens eruption date 79 years prior
11-11-1900...Eclipse on what would become Armistice day 18 years later, ending the First World war
Eclipse 2-25-1952 and June 30, 1954--Solar eclipses intersect over the city of Shahrud, Iran as the Shah is installed in a CIA and British backed coup. August 1953 installed Shah Reza Pahlavi over the democratically elected government of Iran. The Coup is nestled between successive total eclipses with intersection over city of Shahrud ( literally "city of the Shah")...A good example of Cosmic Timekeeping with broad paintstrokes mixed with finer details.
The June 30, 1954 eclipse actually connects the US and Iran.
Eclipse begins just offshore of the USA on Aug 21st 2017 and bisects the nation 7 months and 1 day into the Trump Presidency. Passes over 7 towns named Salem before exiting at slave port of Charleston. 2 1/2 years before the current Pandemic.
Maximum eclipse over "Little Egypt" area near Carbondale, Illinois.
Note similarity in path to the 2017 eclipse, 99 years later. Eclipses overlaid would create a "fish"-shaped convex pattern over the USA with nose in Atlantic and tail intersect in eastern Washington.
6-8-1918---anniversary of death of Prophet Mohammed in 632 AD--exactly 15432 months or 469,698 days or 1286 years.
American troops are fighting in Europe...beginning of Spanish Flu Pandemic.
156 days before Armistice.
188 days after murder of Abe Lincoln. on 84th Anniversary of US victory in Revolutionary War,..a Ring of Fire bisects the USA...path beginning over Mount Saint Helens and ending over slave port of Charleston.
Nearly identical to 2017 USA eclipse Path.
The 1865 and 2017 USA eclipses are exactly 160 eclipse years apart.
See next box
The Saros Cycle which creates the longest annular eclipses ( Ring of Fire ) is Saros 141.
Here are just some of its amazing eclipses.
10-19-1865 USA Abe Lincoln Goodbye/Yorktown anniversary
11-11-1901--Armistice Day 17 years prior/3rd eclipse of 20th Century, Sicily, Pyramids of Giza, Mount Sinai, Arabia, and South india, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, ends at sunset just past Mount Pinatubo in Philippines 32,723 days before its eruption in 1991
11-22-1919 JFK death day eclipse over Texas,
12-14-1955, Longest Ring of Fire Eclipse in nearly 2,000 years at 12 minutes 9 seconds duration over Southeast Asia ---Bangkok's 3rd eclipse in 7 years
12-24-1973 Christmas Eve South America to Africa--on Dr. Fauci's birthday the year he joined the government Health Organization.
L.A. Ring of Fire 1-4-1992---single metropolis ( Southern California) eclipse at sunset 3 months before the L.A> Riots
1-15-2010 Martin Luther King Birthday metonic appears for the first time in hundreds of years--eclipse goes from South America to Africa on what would have been his 81st Birthday.
1-26-2028 Australia Day Spanish Judgment
There were no complete solar eclipses in the year 2000 ..putting thematic significance on the Great Eclipse of 8-11-1999 and the Summer Solstice eclipse of June 21 2001, total eclipses 680 days apart with no other complete eclipses between.
Midpoint of those dates is 7-16-2000 at the tail end of D one of the greatest Solar Storms of the last 100 years, the "Bastille Day" event of July 14-16
only partials with odditiesin 2000---The month of July saw two partial solar eclipses-- a rarity that last occurred in 1880...
also there was a Christmas Partial Solar Eclipse.
One of the most incredible displays of the extraordinary cosmic art of the Maker--.The August 11 1999 eclipse is worthy of study for ages.
The last eclipse of the 20th Century stretches from just offshore of the US , across Europe--including Hitler's Birthplace across Tureky 6 days before their greatest modern earth quake, Mesopotamia --Iran, and India.
...Saros Cycle 145, one of the Great Judgment Saros's . It's next engagement with planet earth would come on August 21st 2017 as it crossed the entire length of the united States of America.
Ring of Fire. Judgment Eclipse. Another extraordinary path beginning in Algeria and ending in Japan. Great cities along the path include Tripoli, Athens, Istanbul (Constantinople), Sevastopol, Volgograd and Sapporo.
There are only a few examples of significant earthquakes following rapidly upon the heels of an eclipse. Obviously, earthquakes happen all the time on earth, so only very serious earthquakes should even possibly be considered.
Two dramatic examples:
On Dec. 3, 1918, an eclipse crossed the Atacama desert of Chile. The next day, a 7.8 earthquake devastated the towns of Atacama.
Also, The nation of Turkey experienced its worst modern earthquake 6 days after the great eclipse of 8-11-1999, with up to 40,000 dead.
The Great Tokyo Earthquake of 1923 happened 9 days before an eclipse traveled from Japan to the USA
More often, the links between such events are distant and abstract. Eclipse paths crossed Mount Saint Helens numerous times--including 2-26-1979 the year before its great eruption.
The island of Montserrat was crossed by an eclipse path twice in the 70 years. Mount Pinatubo in the Philippines was also marked in 1988 three years before its great eruption. , but well in advance.
Any individual location on earth runs about a 1 in 200 chance of experiencing a solar eclipse each year. Bangkok Thailand experienced three in 7 years as part of the Great Southeast Asia Eclipse Swarm---The 5-8-1948 Korean War Eclipse/ The 6-20-1955 and 12-14-1955 eclipses...and the 4-19-1958 Ring of Fire. Both.the 6-20 Total and 12-14 Ring of Fire eclipses were the longest eclipses of the millennium.
I am not a mathematician but I roughly calculated the odds at 500 million to one--please correct me if I am wrong
The Total eclipse of 6-20-1955 ( Saros 136) was the longest eclipse...With a maximum duration of 7 minutes 7.74 seconds, this is the longest solar eclipse of Saros series 136, as well as the longest total solar eclipse since the 11th century, and until the 22nd century, Path of totality includes temple of Angkor Wat and divides Vietnam in two.
On 12-14-1955, a ring of fire cut a similar path through Southeast Asia ( Saros 141)The duration of annularity at maximum eclipse (closest to but slightly shorter than the longest duration) was 12 minutes, 9.17 seconds in the Indian Ocean. It was the longest annular solar eclipse from December 17, 168 to January 14, 3080. Among all the 23740 solar eclipses from 4000 BC to 6000 AD, 7881 are annular, and only 3 of them are longer than this one (from Wikipedia)...IN other words, one of the longest eclipses of all time cuts Vietnam in half 6 weeks after the historically acknowledged beginning of the Vietnam War on 11-1 1955.
The appearance of Columbus Day --October 12 and Columbus Death---May 20 --in the 20th Century metonic make for some interesting eclipses in the decades surrounding the 500th anniversary of his discovery of America and his death in Spain in 1506..
Note: Columbus's birth day is unknown...
A couple of examples...
October 12, 1958 Santiago, Chile Single City eclipse...
On 485th anniversary of landing--exactly 511 eclipse years--exactly 177,133 days.
His death date of 5-20 appears in a Total eclipse on May 20th 1947 connecting South America and the slave coast of Africa exactly 479 eclipse years after the the discovery of the America on 10-12-1492
Eclipse of May 20th 1966 on 460th anniversary of Columbus death ..56% coverage in his home region of Genoa, Italy. 36% in adopted home of Lisbon, Portugal. 40.7% coverage in Valladolid, Spain where he died. Path traverses Africa, the Mediterranean , southern Europe, and ends in China...
... around the 500th anniversary of his death a particularly interesting one on May 20th, 2012 which affects the western USA, ending near George W. Bush's childhood home in Midland Texas.
A total solar eclipse travels almost entirely over open ocean and arrives in Patagonia, South America without making it to the other side. Stops after crossing Torres del Paine National Park, city of El Calafete, , and town of Esperanza ( "hope"), Argentina. Before it reaches Patagonia, however, it becomes the first Eclipse in 1400 years to cross Easter Island. A total solar eclipse on one of the most mysterious and isolated places on planet earth, a tiny speck of land on a vast ocean..
Occurs exactly one lunar year after Wuhan Eclipse of 7-22-2009
Coincidentally, The Easter Island eclipse occurred precisely during the playing of the World Cup Soccer final between the Netherlands and Spain. The Dutch had been the first colonizers of Easter Island in the 1700's. The Spanish were the colonizers of much of South america. Spain had asserted linguistic control, via Chile, in 1888... In a strange sense, it was a soccer match between two extinct empires. Spain won the match 1 -0
Total Eclipse begins just west of Boston and gives that city a total solar eclipse for the first time since 1806 ( it won't have another until 2200) just as its most famous modern son is campaigning for the Presidency of the United States. Kennedy gives a speech that night on the campaign trail in Rochester, New York.Boston is the only major city in America to witness the eclipse.
Kennedy would be elected President the following year on Nov. 8th, the day after a transit of Mercury was visible across the Sun's face from the western hemisphere. Something that occurs about 13 times a century ..There are repeated cosmic associations in the 20th century that seem to bring associations of John F. Kennedy--Saros 143 (Kennedy would turn 43 seven months after eclipse)..Last total eclipse in this Saros cycle occurred Oct.24, 1995--over Vietnam and Southeast Asia!)
A single city is highlighted in a 5,000 mile eclipse path. Mogadishu, Somalia begins the path of this extraordinary solar eclipse which avoids contact with any other land. 1988 was the beginning of a systemic genocide in Somalia of Isaaq tribesmen that killed hundreds of thousands.
3 months before the election of George H.W, Bush to the presidency of the USA.
13 years to the day before the 9-11 terror attacks.
Less than 5 years before the infamous Battle of Mogadishu, also known as "Blackhawk Down" on 10-3-1993
19 years before, there was a 9-11-1969 solar eclipse that hugs the America's ---60% coverage at Altamont Speedway where the Rolling Stones infamous concert ended the 60's on Dec.6, 1969
-only the two complete eclipses of 1969 and 1988 share that 9-11 date for hundreds of years.
A ring of fire travels 5,000 miles across the Pacific to end immediately over Southern California ( and Tijuana Mexico). Eclipse ends as sun goes below horizon at sunset...clouds obscure the view in LA but its very visible in San Diego.
114 days before Rodney King Riots. 6 months and 19 days before enormous 7.3 Landers Quake. Eclipse ends at sunset over Landers
1771 is of course 177 in either direction. Here is the eclipse of May 14,1771--exactly 177 years to the day before the founding of Modern Israel on 5-14-1948.
maximum eclipse occurs near port of Rio De Janeiro, with a thriving Jewish community.
Modern Israel's 77th birthday will be in 2025, also the 70th Jubillee ( 7x7x70 years) since the entrance into Canaan in 1446 BC
subtract 777 years from 1771 and you come to 5-14 -994 BC--- 8 months and 24 days after the last total eclipse visible from Jerusalem in 8-20-993 AD.
A total eclipse happens
That last total eclipse in Jerusalem occurred on August 20 993.
The last annular eclipse in Jerusalem occurred on August 21st 1933
Great World War One Eclipse on August 21st 1914
Total cross-country Great American eclipse on August 21st 2017...
lots of numerical oddities around all this...but that's not so unusual.
Eclipse ( Ring of Fire) begins in Pishan --a Uyghur Muslim majority region of Xinjiang, bisects China, path of annularity perfect over Beijing, then Pyongyang, North Korea and crosses north Tokyo Metropolitan area before ending in the Pacific.
Last land in eclipse path is at Choshi, Japan --one of the last conventional bombing targets in World War Two..Choshi was bombed on 7-19-1945 and August 1st causing great destruction and loss of life.-just after the great atom bomb eclipse of 7-9-1945 of the USA and USSR
Ec;lipse at the outer edges of our time consideration at this site. one year after latest possible 2,000th Anniversary of Crucifixion/Resurrection.
Total solar eclipse travels from the USA to USSR. Path of Totality in Idaho and Montana ( Butte), Canada, Greenland, Scandinavia and then bisecting Russia ---98% totality in St. Petersburg and 95 % in Moscow. Path ends at western border of China. 60% coverage at Nuclear test site at White Sands. 70% at Los Alamos Laboratory.
7-9-1945 was the day the White Sand s Missile Range in New Mexico was established. One week later, on July 16th, the world's first atomic bomb was detonated. The power would be first used on humanity 27 days later in Hiroshima and then in Nagasaki. Again, the incredible Saros 145
(3-7-1970 shown above)
Two Eclipses neatly contain the Cultural Decade of the 60's, both touching the USA. 7 eclipse years apart---2422 days...July 20 1963 and March 7, 1970...
They reappear over the USA again in 2017 and 2024, creating the great New Madrid Tav.
July 20, 1963---6 years to the day before Apollo 11 astronauts stepped on the moon. 39 days before the famous March on Washington that featured both Martin Luther King and Bob Dylan. 125 days before the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Almost 18 years ( minus 17 days) after the twin atomic bombs were dropped by the US on Japan, Saros Cycle 145 which appeared at the Atom Bomb eclipse 18 years before on 7-9-1945 --Total solar eclipse begins in the island of Hokaiddo, Japan-- bisects the new state of Alaska before cutting across Canada. It touches the USA only in Maine, with totality in Bangor, 97% totality at Bush family haven of Kennebunkport. 125 days later John F. Kennedy would be shot dead in Dallas Texas ( 35 % coverage) Boston saw 95 % coverage. Washington DC had 77% coverage. The beginnings of the USA 1960's, as far as solar eclipse associations go. The first Beatles record to be released in America happened two days later. It was "Please Please Me". The decade culturally will end 7 eclipse years later with the March 7, 1970 USA eclipse. The Great Saros 145 which appeared at the Atom Bomb eclipse of 7-9-1945, Liverpool 1927 and again for USA Judgment 8-21-2017
March 7, 1970 eclipse years after the 7-20-1963 USA event, the southeastern seaboard experiences coastal totality. Saros 139 returns to America 4-8-2024 with similar path 1,000 miles to the west
Often there are three eclipses exactly 19 years apart...for instance
there was an eclipse on Dec 4, 1983
an eclipse on Dec 4.2002
and on Dec 4, 2021
Equally spaced out on exact 19 year solar periods because 60 eclipse years ( 34.62 days) equals 57 Solar Years...exactly almost...the lunar years match up too, at 705 months.
After the 57 years, there is typically an 8 year lurch, where the date leaps forward--often on a partial eclipse...in this case it lands on Dec.5th 2029 ...
Okay its not just about Bob Dylan...also the Roaring 20's, New York City, and a trip across the big pond to Great Britain
Exactly 7 eclipse years (2422 days) after June 8 1918 USA cross country eclipse--A Hepton Cycle example-- One of the most famous eclipses in US History travels along the northern boundary of the United States, where it is viewed by hundreds of thousands in New York City, the last total solar eclipse in that city. 16 years and four months before the birth of perhaps our nation's greatest cultural figure, Bob Dylan. The path begins in Upper Minnesota, with both Dylan's hometown Hibbing and birthplace Duluth, and adopted home of Woodstock ( Bethel New York) in the eclipse totality.
Eclipse occurs 36 years to the day before Bob Dylan arrives in New York City from Minnesota on January 24th, 1961. He plays 2 songs at an open mic that very night. History does not record which songs he played in the city where he would become famous and often live.
Saros 120, returning in the Equinox Eclipse of March 20,2015
One of the only total solar eclipses to cross Liverpool in hundreds of years broke through heavy cloud banks to give an immortal show to thousands of Brits. In the 1920's the British Empire covered nearly a quarter of the Earth's surface.Within the same time frame as the span between the Hibbing eclipse and Dylan's birth ( 16 years) all members of the Beatles are born in the eclipse path in Liverpool. Within the same time frame of 40 years from time of eclipse, their music achieves maximum popularity. June 1967 is the release of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band
Clearly the path travels over virtually no other populated regions besides Scandinavia and the UK, but nevertheless connects Britain and America- beginning just to the west of the British Isles before traveling a great eliptic path across the northern latitudes ending just after crossing the Aleutian Islands of Alaska.
Beatles songs about the cosmos include: Good Day Sunshine, Here Comes the Sun, Across the Universe, I'll Follow the Sun, The Sun King.
One of the greats. ---even though a young Saros eclipse ( began in 1630's) nearly every one of its complete manifestations geographically interesting...
most recent appearance 8-21-2017 The Great American Cross Country eclipse.
Next Appearance 9-2-2035 China/Beijing--Pyongyang, North Korea
History: 8-11-1999 20th Century judgment ---South Asia/ Europe
7-31-1981 USSR Judgment
7-20-1963 The 60's Eclipse USSR to USA
7-9-1945 Atom Bomb Eclipse USA to USSR
6-29-1927 British Judgment/ Liverpool as eclipse first becomes a Total in its existence...Too awesome to be dismissed.
Ring of Fire Eclipse. Judgment Eclipse. June 10, 2021. Eclipse begins at sunrise in southern Ontario, Canada, literally just across the border from Thunder Bay USA. It traverses Canada and Greenland, then ends in extreme Northern Russia.
Occurs as Canada sinks into tyranny.
2 Equinoxes, Summer Solstice and Christmas all make repeated appearances in the space of the last 120 years.
The Ominous Mayan/Aztec Apocalypse Saros 127 eclipse across Mexico and much of Central America of August 8, 1496 signaled the end of the great New World Empires and the beginning of European colonial dominance.
Saros 127 returns for the last of the Hepton Monday Series on 7-13-2037 across Australia and new Zealand.
The Spanish trinity of eclipses (3 in 18 months) 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.
In case you're wondering, I think Hitler was an evil man. Are there relationships in the eclipse cycles?
Hours before his 50th birthday, a solar eclipse on April 19th 1939 ( also Darwin's death day 57 years prior)...the great eclipse of 8-11-1999--last eclipse of the millennium goes over his birthplace and Munich...Total solar eclipse occurs on his birthday of April 20, 2023 (2023 is the 100th anniversary of Munich Beer Hall Putsch)...
His death day of April 30th also appears in the Judgment cycle, the 77th anniversary of his death in 2022 in a partial solar eclipse.
This makes Hitler's Death and Birth dates appear in eclipses within one lunar year of each other on April 30,2022 and April 20th, 2023...the 77th anniversary of his death and the 134th anniversary of his birth, respectively.
Only one eclipse occurs between them--Oct.25, 2022 partial eclipse
Last Total eclipse in USA for 38 years. Totality over Mount Saint Helens (1222.2 degrees longitude). 388 days before she awoke with an earthquake on Spring Equinox of March 20 1980, and 447 days before she exploded to the due north in the direction of Mictrosoft ( 97 miles away --122.2 degrees longitude) on May 18 1980 in the largest volcanic eruption in modern Continental US History..
7 weeks after Bill Gates and Paul Allen move Microsoft Corporation to Gate's hometown of Bellevue, Washington--99.64% Totality in Bellevue..The beginning of the technological era. The final era of the American Empire and the creation of the last world Empire. . The number one song in America was "Do you think I'm Sexy" by Rod Stewart..the number one non-news show was "Three's Company"
A total lunar eclipse visible in North America happened 8 days after the murder of Reverend Martin Luther King. He was killed on April 4, 1968--the eclipse was April 12/13 1968.
His death date reappears in the Blood Moon Passover lunar eclipse of April 4th, 2015--57 years (3 metonic cycles) after his assassination and reappears 19 years later on April 3/4 Passover 2034 eclipse.
Many believe Jesus was crucified during lunar eclipse of April 3, 33 AD...thus making the murders of Jesus and MLK stand side by side in the solar calendar.
MLK was born on Jan 15. His birthday appears in the solar eclipse Metonic beginning in 1991 and again in 2010
As expected, an almost infinite surprise of unusual number configurations await those who seek them in the dating of eclipses.
Unfortunately, its awfully easy to get lost in the pursuit of such patterns.
Calendar relations are much easier to pin down. For Hebrew calendar relations to eclipses I suggest the work of Dean Coombs at 1260d.com.
Here's an example of a funny configuration:
1987 saw two solar eclipses on earth-
-one on 3-29 and one on 9-23...obviously they are palindromes.
Indeed the 1900's are all prefixed with the Metonic 19, ( including the great Einstein eclipse of 1919)
the 1900's were the last time dates create numbers right side up and upside down until 6000AD...
the last date that remained itself when turned upside down was 1961. Before that, 1881 and 1691
Such an event will not happen again until 6009 AD --
these are just some of the directions one can lose themselves in the forest of numbers..if such things interest you..Personally, .I do not put much stock in numerology or gematria.
there's plenty more if you look, but meaning can elude such investigations, though they may very well open up a window into the fractal layers of reality.
It's quite fun to find eclipses that pertain to your birthdates or family origins, or historical interests.. Eclipse dates are available online or in book form with Fred Espenak's great 5 Millenium Canon of Eclipses.
I am attempting to call attention to the eclipses that are upcoming. I believe they bear significance of utmost urgency in relation to the resolution of history. I understand that many don't care about this or think that it is silly. Pleasing their tastes or comforting their pride is not my concern.
The Metaverse/Singularity forces our consideration of the Real and consideration of free will. The eclipses will happen regardless of digital interference. Look up and seek your maker.
The upcoming eclipses around the 2,000th anniversary of the death of Lord Jesus Christ will focus attention on his true significance. There are many eclipses which assist in this.
Extraordinary configurations of eclipses occur in the America, Africa, the Mideast and Asia ...it is up to the individual to assign or dismiss meaning
to these undeniable events.
For the record, the creator of this website claims them as messages from God that he sees all, that he created everything, and that he will triumph over darkness.
