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 17, 2017.

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.

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.
