Obscure Observation

Over the past year, I’ve spent a lot of time researching and talking about eclipses, particularly total solar eclipses.

However, there’s another significant type of solar eclipse, albeit less of one, called an annular solar eclipse. The reason it’s not quite as significant is because the moon is far enough away from the earth that it fails to cover the entire sun, leaving a ring of light around the moon.

Despite this, it’s still separate from a partial solar eclipse, in that there is a path of annularity, similar to that of totality.

Anyway, the reason I make this post is because the next time a path of either annularity or totality passes through my home town will be on June 11th, 2048. That would be my parents’ 66th anniversary. And here I am researching the book of Revelation, the 66th book, and what it says about solar eclipses.
