Hello, Gematrinators!

The 1979 Total Solar Eclipse Over Montana

I’ve been blogging about the death of Kobe Bryant a lot since it happened. It might be the most significant thing that’s happened since I started this blog – Gematrinator.com has experienced triple its normal traffic over the past two days, breaking daily records.

After making five full posts on his death, I finally feel like I’ve gotten to the bottom of the riddle, and how it relates to Super Bowl 54. As always, in order to understand these riddles, we need to understand total solar eclipses.


A good chunk of the posts on this blog mention the two total solar eclipses that create an X over the United States of America in 2017 and 2024:

Notice how these eclipses are 2423 days apart. This is the same as 6 years, 6 months, 6 weeks, 6 days

"6 years, 6 months, 6 weeks, 6 days" = 2423 (Jewish)


No doubt, those eclipses are important. But before 2017, when was the last time a total solar eclipse touched U.S. soil? Prior to 2017, we had not seen one since 1979. The path of totality entered between Washington and Oregon, and then followed the border into the panhandle of Idaho. But what stands out the most about this path is how it covered nearly the entire state of Montana, the fourth-largest state by area in the nation.

This year’s Montana Bowl is a tribute to this total solar eclipse.

Montana Bowl and Total solar eclipse both = 994 Extended

Joe Montana’s final game was against Miami, the city that hosts the Montana Bowl. That game was played on the last day of 1994Dec. 31 marks the 25-year anniversary of Montana's final NFL game, which was with the Kansas City Chiefs during the 1994 playoffs. Montana had led the Chiefs to playoffs in back-to-back seasons, but the 1993 season ended in disappointment in the AFC championship game against the Bills.

The date was 12/31
1231 is the 202nd Prime number

"Total solar eclipse" = 202 (English Ordinal)

The Montana Bowl is on 2/02 in 2020
The 22nd Prime number is 79
Joe Montana was drafted in ’79
The Montana eclipse was in ’79
It was on the date 26/2

"Montana" = 262 (Jewish)


Montana won four championships with the 49ers, beginning with Super Bowl 16, while he wore #16. This post will also discuss how the death of Kobe Bryant is related to this game.

Helicopter crash = 79 and 160, Joe Montana Bowl = 160


On the date of this Montana eclipse, Joe Montana was 22 years, 260 days old: 22 Years, 260 Days

Kobe Bryant died on the 26th day of 2020. His best game was on the 22nd day of 2006, when he scored 81 points in a game against the Toronto Raptors.

Joe Montana started a total of 187 games during his career. On the date of the ’79 total eclipse, Kobe was 187 days old:187 Days

"Total eclipse" = 187 (Reverse Ordinal)


You could also say Montana was a span of 261 days after his birthday on the date of the Montana eclipse. Kobe Bryant died on 26/1, which can also be written as 1/26.

"Fifty-four" = 126 (English Ordinal)

The date of the Montana eclipse had 126 and 54 numerology:(2) + (26) + (19) + (79) = 126 and (2) + (26) + 1+9+7+9 = 54

The State of Montana was admitted to the Union on a date with 126 numerology:(11) + (8) + (18) + (89) = 126 and (11) + (8) + (89) = 108

Joe Montana’s full name has 126 gematria:

Joseph Clifford Montana Jr. = 108 and 126 in Reduction

"Eighteen eighty-nine" = 108 (Full Reduction)

"Joe Montana" = 108 (English Ordinal)


Patrick Mahomes was born on 17/9
179 is the 41st Prime number, and his birthday had Reduced numerology of 419 + 1+7 + 1+9+9+5 = 41

Montana was the 41st state admitted to the Union.

"Super Bowl" = 41 (Full Reduction)

Kobe’s best game was exactly 54 weeks before Super Bowl 41. He would later die at the age of 41

"Thirteen thirty-one" = 1889 (English Extended)

1889 is the 290th Prime number

"Christ" = 290 (Jewish)"Eclipse sacrifice" = 290 (Reverse Ordinal)

Kobe Bryant died a span of 889 days after the 2017 Great American eclipse:889 Days

His death fell exactly one week, or seven days before the game. He died the same day as the 33rd Royal Rumble.

One week and Seven days = 33 Reduction, Kobe = 33 Ordinal

The Super Bowl falls on the 33rd day of the year, or 2/2/20

Eclipse = 33 Reduction and 222 Extended

It will be exactly 895 days after the Great American Eclipse:
895 Days

Thirty-three & Ritual human sacrifice both = 895 in Jewish gematria

The starting quarterback for the Chiefs will be exactly 8905 days old on gameday:8905 Days
