On August 21st, 2017, something is going to happen in the United States that has not happened since 1918. On that date, a total solar eclipse will be visible all the way from the east coast to the west coast. Incredibly, another rare solar eclipse of this nature will move across the country just seven years later in 2024. If you plot the projected courses of these two solar eclipses on a map, you will find that they form a giant “X” across the continental United States. In the Scriptures, Jesus told us that “there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars” just prior to His return, and many are speculating about what this giant “X” might mean.
Astronomers have been buzzing about the upcoming solar eclipse on August 21st because it is so very rare. In fact, many are already making plans to travel to specific locations in order to have an optimal viewing experience. The following description of what will happen on that day comes from Fox News…
Day will turn into night across the United States on Aug. 21, as the country experiences its first total solar eclipse in decades.
On this day, the moon will pass directly between the Earth and the sun, casting a shadow on the United States that will track from Oregon to South Carolina.
This will be the first time since 1918 that a total solar eclipse will be visible from the West Coast to the East Coast of the United States. The most recent total solar eclipse visible in the United States occurred in 1979; however, it was only visible across the Pacific Northwest.
