The ‘Great American Eclipse’ as it has been called is to be a truly spectacular event. This much anticipated eclipse is likely to be the most watched, most photographed and most televised astronomical event of a generation. The path of totality will begin in the middle of the North Pacific Ocean then race across no less than 14 states of the USA from West to East plunging the landscape in to darkness for a over 2 minutes.

The corridor of the Moon’s shadow will reach over 70 miles in width. Millions of Americans will live within easy reach of the total phase of this eclipse known as totality. Countless numbers of people will be making travel plans across the United States for August 2017.

A rare aspect of this eclipse is that the path of totality occurs over just one country. This is America’s eclipse, a great eclipse for a great nation. The 2017 eclipse also occurs over the planet’s two largest oceans, the Pacific and Atlantic ending a little over 300 miles SSW of Cape Verde.

During the August 21 eclipse, the moon will pass between the sun and Earth, blocking the face of the sun and leaving only its outer atmosphere, or corona, visible in the sky. It is the first coast-to-coast total eclipse since 1918.

Weather permitting, astronomy enthusiasts can watch as the moon's 70-mile (113-km) wide shadow crosses the country, starting at 10:15 a.m. PDT (1715 GMT) around Lincoln Beach, Oregon, and ending at 2:49 p.m. EDT (1849 GMT) in McClellanville, South Carolina.

The U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration has already discussedf several solar physics and Earth science experiments to be conducted during the eclipse. The agency also plans live broadcasts during the eclipse from dozens of locations along the path.

Total solar eclipses occur somewhere on Earth every year or so, but most cast their shadow over oceans or remote land. The last time a part of the contiguous U.S. saw a total eclipse was in 1979.

All of North America will experience a partial eclipse, though the difference between a full and partial eclipse is "literally the difference between night and day," said astronomer Rick Fienberg of the American Astronomical Society.

He noted that even a 99 percent eclipse will not reveal the sun's corona. And during a total eclipse, the temperature drops and the horizon is ringed by the colors of sunset.

"The sky gets deep twilight blue and bright stars and planets come out," Fienberg said. "Animals and birds behave strangely, like it's the end of the day."

More than 12 million Americans live in the path of the full eclipse, said astronomer Angela Speck, who heads the society's eclipse public outreach campaign.

The entire U.S. population, except for northern Maine, lives within 900 miles of the full eclipse's path.

Travel groups and many scientists will be heading to Oregon's northwest desert, which has the best odds of favorable weather for viewing, according to the website eclipsophile.com.

While solar eclipses are relatively common, this one is different, some Christians believe, as it is a sign of the end of the world especially those so self indulgent with their prophetical views on America that its all about the total eclipse that takes place in America omitting all other total eclipses that have taken place in other parts of the world over the decades.

Michael Parker writing for serial apocalypse predictor Prophecies of the End Times, states: “Those that come and divide the land of Israel, God himself will come to that nation and cut them to pieces."

"It turns out that THIS solar eclipse is a once in a lifetime event. It will be over 100 years until it happens again. This concludes that this is a generational event, witnessed by THIS generation.”

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.

This is something that does not happen very often, and that is why it is so extraordinary that another solar eclipse will be visible in large portions of the nation just seven years later in 2024. When you chart the courses of both eclipses on a map, you see that they form a giant "X" right over the center of the country.

Could this giant "X" have some sort of meaning?

According to The Washington Post, some believe that "the two eclipses that are slated to travel across the United States in 2017 and 2024, together marking an X across the nation, could be the starting and ending signs bookmarking a seven-year period of awful tribulations that Revelations [sic] says waits in store for nonbelievers who are left behind on Earth when the rapture occurs."

"An area spanning parts of Missouri, Illinois and Kentucky will be the nexus of the next two total solar eclipses to occur in the U.S., on Aug. 21, 2017, and April 8, 2024. Because the 2017 eclipse travels across the country from northwest to southeast and the 2024 eclipse makes its way through the nation from southwest to northeast, the two paths cross each other and create a zone of overlapping totality of almost 9,000 square miles, or roughly the size of New Jersey."

This has caused some to reflect on something that John Paul Jackson once said. Back in 2008, he made a DVD called "The Perfect Storm" in which he detailed a whole host of disasters that God showed him are coming to America. At the very beginning of the DVD, John Paul explained that the majority of the things that he was going to talk about on the DVD would not happen for about a decade.

Is that just another "coincidence"?

This also brings into the debate the unusual celestial event which will happen on September 23rd. It is being referred to as "the Revelation 12 sign," and apparently, this will be the very first time that the scene described in Revelation chapter 12 will be depicted in the stars in about 7000 years. Here is more from The Washington Post:

"The Book of Revelation, which is full of extraordinary imagery, describes a woman "clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head" who gives birth to a boy who will "rule all the nations with an iron scepter" while she is threatened by a red, seven-headed dragon. On Sept. 23, we will be able to see this scene in the heaven."

So will 2017 turn out to be one of the most meaningful years for Bible prophecy that we have ever seen?
