Europe is going to have it great!! Especially the Brits!

One site has indicated "that a Supermoon, equinox and eclipse will fall on the same day"

This is the one I'm looking forward to:

August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse..

That fucker is going to rip right through the center of the US, & the whole continent will get at least a partial view..

Assuming I'm still in NA, in any case...


Anyways.. just a heads up..

what's really nice is that you can see the way the eccentricity of lunar orbit and polar inclination bring the region of totality to a very, very high latitude..

compare that with the 2017 eclipse..

if the moon were not in a slightly inclined orbit, all eclipses would occur between the the two tropics (+23 & -23 degrees, lat), and if the earth were *also* not rotationally inclined, all eclipses would be along the equator..

and not only *this*, but the orbital distance is just the right amount to to provide for minor annular and total eclipses..

coincidence???

i think not...
