“X Marks the Spot”: Rare Total Solar Eclipse Coming Soon Hasn’t Happened Since 1918… but Here’s Where It Gets Weird

Top Tier Gear USA


It’s being called “The Big One”.

Coming this summer, we will see an event unlike any we’ve seen in North America since 1918: a total solar eclipse crossing the entire United States in a line from coast to coast on August 21, 2017.

The eclipse will begin around 9:48 am Pacific Standard Time. According to NASA, the longest duration of totality will be 2 minutes 41.6 seconds at 37°35′0″N 89°7′0″W in Shawnee National Forest south of Carbondale, Illinois and the greatest extent will be at 36°58′0″N 87°40′18″W near Cerulean, Kentucky.

Although it is a narrow swath, it will be the first total solar eclipse visible in the US at all since July 11, 1991. While the rest of the country will see only a partial eclipse, it will be the first visible in the southeastern part of the country since March 1970.

But here’s where it gets even more interesting…

Even though a total coast-to-coast solar eclipse hasn’t happened in America since 1918, not only are we seeing one this year, but we’re set to see another total coast-to-coast solar eclipse just seven years after that on April 8, 2024… and the other one will complete a giant “X” across the entire United States.

And that’s not all…

If you plot the two total eclipse paths on a map, it would appear the giant “X” intersects right over the New Madrid fault line near Cape Girardeau, Missouri and Paducah, Kentucky — which will thus see two total solar eclipses in less than seven years.

Some people say these are “signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” in a Biblical, end times type of sense… just saying.

    People will look for any reason to freak themselves out…

    • Anyone who is paying attention doesn’t need to look for a reason.

        Yet instead of paying attention to what is happening right now, in front of their faces, they make up things to panic about…

      Holly shit, we need to do something about that!

  • If Rush Limbaugh goes home, he could be totally in the dark mid-day twice, but it is doubtful that he’d know the difference.

    I saw a total one in 1984 in Louisiana and it was quite eerie. I saw the partial in 2012 from CA and that was pretty cool as well.

    The article gives two dates: August 17 and August 21, 2017. NASA says August 21. Where did August 17 come from?

    The “X” is over an area known as Little Egypt, thought to be named because that area supplied crops to northern Illinois after a hard winter there, much like Joseph supplied the area around Egypt in Genesis. It is an area of the US with town names from Egypt as well, such as Cairo and Memphis. For prophesy watchers the two eclipses appear to put parentheses around a seven year period that bears interest, which is also a potential reverberation from the story of Joseph. Remember that 400 years later Egypt was the number one superpower in the world when their military was wiped out in the bottom of the Red Sea. At any rate it is appointed that all should die and then receive judgement. Repent and seek forgiveness now before it is too late. http://Www.atheistmovie.com for more info.

      Michael, after reading the article I have to admit that I was yawning. I did not think this was that big of a deal, especially knowing how in today’s “news” world most news agencies like to turn something small into something that will “Totally Shock You!” But after reading your take on this, it got me thinking. And I believe you are absolutely correct. The Daily Sheeple should pay you for making this article stand out. You have shed light on WHY this is such an important event. Thank you!

        Why is it important?

        Try to make it coherent, using no fairy tales or mythology.

    God tells us in the first chapter of Genesis in the Bible He uses the sun, moon and stars as signs to speak to His people. People better wake up and accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior because the Rapture is imminent and heaven help those who are left behind!
