    Here is a 5-hour YouTube video that streams real time for the entire duration of the eclipse (1,104,942 views in 1 day):
    .

    .
    Starting at minute 46, the view of the solar observatory in Stanley, Idaho begins its imaging of the sun with the moon's moving in front of it.
    .
    Graham Jones (astrophysicist and educator) slowly and deliberately describes in detail what's going on, while Anne Buckle (journalist with timeanddate.com) tries really hard to APPEAR interested in what he says. It's her job to keep trying, even if she's not really interested.
    .
    This eclipse is the most anticipated and the most intensely observed eclipse in history. There have been millions of observers, many with sophisticated equipment watching it. Even so, in my area most people went about their day without so much as any awareness or interest in the fact. Strange.
    .
    Starting at 1 hour, for the next 20 minutes and so on, the clear closeup telephoto view of the sun with moon's silhouette moving in front of it is shown.
    .
    The slowness of the progress is fully covered in this video. I made a solar eclipse projector with a cardboard garment box, by cutting holes in the end and the side, and placing a white screen angled at the bottom for the sun's light to project on. I was outside in the sunshine, expecting passers-by to be interested in seeing what I was doing. Much to my surprise, I had to approach people, carrying my box, asking them if they would like to see the eclipse going on inside. They seemed to not believe me at first. They seemed to think I was trying to sell them something. Most of them did not know that an eclipse was happening, and some didn't know what an eclipse is. One neighbor had kept her children home from school for fear they might look at the sun and hurt their eyes. When I offered her to see inside my box, she told her children (whom she kept inside her house) "maybe later." The eclipse came and went, and she prevented her children from seeing its effects as it was happening. I had shown her you can see the shadows of the partially covered sun on the concrete walkway where bushes and trees cast their shadows. But she kept her children indoors anyway.
    .
    Some of the people who looked into my garment box projector were very grateful for the opportunity. One man commented that it's not moving very fast. I told him the shadow of the moon moves across the earth at 1,300 mph but while we watch the image of the sun it appears to be standing still. He didn't seem to understand this difference at all.
    .
    If you want to skip to the beginning of the totality coverage, go to minute 1:45:00.

    They provided a schedule, broadcast live before it happened, of the Coordinated Universal Time of each phase of this eclipse, and then by watching the video you can see that each of these anticipated times transpired as the schedule had shown.
    .
    UTC time
    15:46  -  Partial eclipse begins worldwide
    16:00  -  Partial eclipse hits US west coast
    17:16  -  Start of total eclipse on the west coast US
    18:25  -  maximum eclipse (in Illinois or Kentucky)
    18:49  -  Total eclipse leaves US east coast
    20:10  -  Partial eclipse leaves US east coast
    21:04  -  end of eclipse wordwide
    .
    Near the end of the video, they display a newspaper clipping from 1932 saying that this would be the last time to view such an eclipse for the next 85 years, and it had August 21st, 1917 printed there, the correct date 85 years ahead of time.

    The U.S. Expiration Date

    America’s Seven-Year Tribulation

    March 7, 2021 - by LH 




    In 2017 and by 2024, the U.S. will have experienced two great eclipses. Between them both: seven years of tribulation.
    As each day brings forward developments worse than the last, and an obvious pattern of decline and destruction manifests itself, it becomes quite difficult to even look at the news. At some point in the recent past, we could tell we were on a tipping edge that would send us hurtling down a chasm. As though we were on a fatal, one-way teeter-totter. Before, with Tɾυmρ, we could feel the board rising as we were about to go over. Now, on the other side of history’s fulcrum, the board is sliding down the cliff, and we are falling down with it. Our days are numbered.
    But it appears that this process has been mapped out. We have been shown in politics, history, culture, economic statistics, and even Heaven-sent prophecy how things would play out. But also, nature itself has shown us the path that we would take.
    America, a Great Harlot, a Whore of Babylon, a prison of every unclean and hateful spirit—this place has a special destiny. This great and strong city, with whom governments of the earth fornicate and spread immorality, is destined to be stripped naked and burned in fire. The political entity known as the United States of America, which sits upon the waters of the multitudes in its pledge to fraternity, egalitarianism, and cosmopolitan diversity—this power is despised by the very blasphemous Beast which uses her as its political tool and public face. Her fate in these latter days may very well be acknowledged by the very stars themselves, as a celestial drama has been playing itself out since at least 2016—the year that Donald Tɾυmρ was elected, and which was ironically called by the American CIA pope, The Year of Mercy.
    Tɾυmρ the Tɾυmρet
    The Year of Mercy was declared in March of 2015 by Pope Francis. It was set to end on November 20, 2016. This was very ominous, as the world would soon be able to find out. Why? Because after that, we began to see signs in the sky.
    It startled the world when Donald Tɾυmρ won the presidency. It was as though his ɛƖɛctıon into the highest office in the world was some kind of a harbinger in and of itself. Even the name “Tɾυmρ” bespeaks Tɾυmρets—that is to say, a loud announcement of something coming our way. No one thought it possible that a populist like Donald Tɾυmρ could dare defeat the Clinton machine, but this he did.
    Shortly after his ɛƖɛctıon in November of 2016, the Year of Mercy ended. November 20th had arrived. What would come next?
    It so happened that on that very day that the Year of Mercy ended, a unique thing took place in the sky that would never happen again. Another kind of Tɾυmρet—another herald—would manifest itself in the very heavens. This was the Lady of Revelations Conjunction, spoken of in few Catholic circles:
    Quote
    Let us revisit the opening verses of Revelation 12.

    “And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.”

    The author of Revelation clearly indicates that this vision is one of a sign in heaven or in the sky. What do we see in the sky of the near future?

    On November 20, 2016, an astronomical event begins that will last nine and a half months, culminating in startling concurrence with the vision of Revelation 12. While I am not an astronomer, all my research indicates that this astronomical event, in all its particulars, is unique in the history of man.

    On November 20, 2016, Jupiter (the King planet) enters into the body (womb) of the constellation Virgo (the virgin).   Jupiter, due its retrograde motion, will spend the next 9 ½ months within the womb of Virgo. This length of time corresponds with gestation period of a normal late-term baby.

    After 9 ½ months, Jupiter exits out of the womb of Virgo. Upon Jupiter’s exit (birth), on September 23, 2017, we see the constellation Virgo with the sun rise directly behind it (the woman clothed with the sun). At the feet of Virgo, we find the moon. And upon her head we find a crown of twelve stars, formed by the usual nine stars of the constellation Leo with the addition of the planets Mercury, Venus, and Mars.

    That is a truly remarkable and, as far as I can determine, unique series of event with a startling degree of concurrence with the vision of Revelation 12.
    This phenomenon of “The Virgin” of the heavens giving birth to the “king planet” began at the end of The Year of Mercy. It ended on September 23, 2017. This date was quite significant, as it was the day after the Jєωιѕн Feast of the Tɾυmρets—a Jєωιѕн harvest day that commemorates the the very Final Harvest of souls.
    America In Eclipse: Her Tribulation Begins
    With the Tɾυmρets having their say, the time had finally come. Only three weeks after “The Virgin” constellation had given birth to the “king planet,” it was the 100-year anniversary of the warning from Our Lady of Fatima. But also, there was another major herald for the next chapter in America’s place on the world stage. As Virgo was concluding her “birth pangs,” America was marked from one side to the other by The Great American Eclipse. This took place on August 21st, 2017. The total solar eclipse would travel from the state of Washington, diagonally down to the other coast of the country, exiting over South Carolina. It would pass over every major earthquake zone in the country, including the New Madrid Fault.
    The Great American Eclipse took place on the anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Knock—an apparition that also took place on the very day of a canonical coronation of Our Lady of Salette. This eclipse was also on the feast day of Saint Pope Pius X, originator of the Oath Against Modernism. The eclipse took place exactly 40 days before Michaelmas, a day commemorating St. Michael the Archangel, leader of God’s angelic army. Furthermore, August is the month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, a heart that, we must remember, has held back the punishing arm of Her Beloved Son from striking the world.
    And finally, it was after this eclipse that the Jєωιѕн calendar began it’s final month in the Jєωιѕн year—known as Elul, the Harvest Month, which of course, concluded with the Feast of the Tɾυmρets (mentioned above). It is said that an 800-year old prophecy from Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel predicted that Israel would lose control of Jerusalem after this period. And, interestingly enough, Donald Tɾυmρ moved the United States Embassy to Jerusalem in 2018.
    After The Great American Eclipse of 2017, President Donald Tɾυmρ began to lose control of his own office. It started in Charlottesville, North Carolina, when a fαℓѕє fℓαg operation set up by the radical Left turned the now-infamous Unite the Right Rally into a years-long gaslighting campaign that would stir up a spirit of unquenchable left-wing ʀɛʋօʟutιօn that swept over the country. President Tɾυmρ would be spending the rest of his tenure defending his name and reputation, achieving very little—although revealing a great amount of wickedness in America’s 5th column.
    The Great Tribulation?
    The United States was going into some kind of a phase. Forecasters looked ahead and noted that there would be another Great American Eclipse taking place on April 8, 2024. This was almost a seven-year period lasting 2,422 days. Was this to be The Great Tribulation?
    This idea of an end-times Great Tribulation is a relatively new concept that took shape when American Dispensationalist Protestants took stage in America in the 1800s. The idea stems from the twelfth Book of Daniel. According to such thinkers, a seven-year tribulation is to take place before the Second Coming of Christ, and while the first half of this period is said to be bearable, the second half of this Great Tribulation features The Abomination of Desolation, a replacement for “the regular sacrifice.” The latter portion of The Great Tribulation is to be a time of great punishment and persecution. It is a time of The Beast, Satanism, the antichrist, and cruelty towards God’s people.
    But surely, this bit of non-Catholic eschatology was not the case for America, was it?
    The Midpoint Of America’s Tribulation
    By December of 2020—the tail end of the Chinese Year of the Rat—society was unrecognizable. Scriptures tells us that man was made in God’s own image, and that our face is the image of God. Yet, the entire world had become an insane dystopia by this time. To buy or sell in public, one would have to cover this image of God with ineffectual facemasks. America and the world had transformed—by all appearances—into a kind of a cult. Bishop Athanasius Schneider said it best, when he called it “a sanitary dictatorship,” as everyone and their mother was terrified of a man-made cold virus that had a 99.7% survival rate. Yet this health hysteria did not stop the radical Left from burning American cities to the ground throughout the summer. To top it all off, a clear and undeniable act of voter fɾαυd on an international scale took place in broad daylight, and the office of the president was usurped by a literally-demented senior who hardly ever knew where he even was.
    Maybe it could be said that America was, perhaps, wrapped up in its own kind of “tribulation.” Because at the exact midpoint between the two Great American Eclipses—1,211 days into this 2,422 period—another eclipse took place. This eclipse actually took place in the home country of the “current pontiff,” Pope Francis.
    This is extremely significant. Pope Francis is seen in both his home country of Argentina and abroad as “the CIA pope,” or “Washington’s Pope.” He is the pope who was chosen to lead the world into a new age alongside U.S. President Barak σbαmα and his presumed successor. While the United States would the the political wing leading the world into a new Great Reset, Pope Francis would be the head of the religious wing. It was said in discussion boards as early as a month before his ɛƖɛctıon that a man from Argentina would be elected. This man, who already had deep state ties to the United States through Operation Condor, was chosen by the St. Gallen Mafia to usurp the place once held by Pope Benedict XVI—whom, it is often presumed, was pushed out of the Chair of Peter. All of these circuмstances demonstrated that Pope Francis was in both fact and prophecy, an infamous non-canonically elected pope. He was not a true pastor, but a destroyer.
    Pope Francis and the United States were two beasts serving the same cause. And so, it was extremely significant when a total solar eclipse passed over his homeland on December 14th, 2020. The eclipse took place after Gaudete Sunday. The timing of this holiday correlation is startling: 1. America was at the exact midpoint of this seven-year tribulation. 2. Bergoglio’s Eclipse was the exact midpoint of that period, and 3. it was after the midpoint of Advent—a period in which we read of the End Times and wait in anticipation for the coming of Christ in the Christmas season, much like the people of the Latter Days await His final return.
    This dark moment for America, and the world, was also taking place on the Feast of St. John of the Cross, who is well-known for his discussions about the “Dark Night of the Soul.” This condition is a state of consciousness in which someone meets God in the deepest way after a difficult purgation of sensory and spiritual parts of the soul. Those experiencing this undergo a spiritual crisis of the deepest doubt, ultimately deepening their faith and closeness to God.
    Other fantastic astronomical events surrounded this moment, such as an ominous meteor shower the night before. Exactly one week later, the world bore witness to The Great Conjunction, another tremendous bookmark for this point in history. Many wanted to regard the joining of Jupiter and Saturn as “the Christmas star,” but a deeper dive into the context of the different planets and constellations in play revealed a darker message for mankind. This made sense given the circuмstances of that period of time.
    But even more intriguing about Bergoglio’s Eclipse was the fact that it passed directly over the homeland of the Mapuche people. Furthermore, as this total solar eclipse passed overhead, a 6.1 magnitude earthquake shook Bolivia, just to the north. Bolivia is the birthplace of the demon goddess, Pachamama, and the Mapuche people worship her. And as many faithful Catholics know, this false god was coronated in Rome around the exact time that the dreaded CÖVÌD-19 was released from ƈhıną into the public. To this day, Pachamama is still commemorated by various prelates in the Church, more even than the messages of Jesus Christ.
    The End of America’s Tribulation
    When this seven-year phase of the United States concludes, it will be with a second Great American Eclipse. This time, the total solar eclipse will come up from Mexico in the southwest, and it will exit the United States through Maine in the northeast. It will be as if God, Himself, will have marked the country with a big X—all centered on the New Madrid fault zone. This X will also be straight over a little place in Illinois called “Little Egypt”, due to the circuмstances of a famine that took place in the 1800s.
    There is bound to be more coincidences discovered with this next total solar eclipse as America gets closer to it, and there certainly will be more signs in the sky and world events taking place between now and then. The question remains: What will this mean for the United States of America? More importantly, what will this mean for the Americans living here? Our Lady of Fatima once said that “nations would be annihilated.” Is this our fate? A great cosmic magnifying glass is shining on the North American Continent, and we are left to ask ourselves: Is something coming for us? And if so, will we survive it? Understandably, the U.S. has done a great amount on the global scene to earn a large amount of attention from the forces above and below. The heavens themselves certainly appear to be showing us this.
    Is America undergoing some sort of Great Tribulation? Does this punishment of the country parallel such a Great Tribulation in a kind of typological way? Is this seven-year period the real deal? After all, we’ve reached a point at which many Catholics, themselves, are beginning to call out Pope Francis as The False Prophet, himself, and the deliverer of the Abomination of Desolation. Is this it? Is it perhaps a beta-test, or a kind of dress rehearsal for the main End Times event?
    Whatever is going on, all the signs point to an unhappy outcome, save the purification of some souls.
    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.

  • Good stuff Laramie & Emile.

    Would anyone have guessed that last country to have the two total eclipses in the 2422 day period was none other than Russia as the USSR came apart? The first one was on July 22, 1990 and the second one was March 9, 1997.  There was even an X pattern, but in north Siberia.

    Now, between August 21, 2017 and ɛƖɛctıon day November 3, 2020, there are 1170 days. Where does that put you when you add that same number to the first Russian eclipse on July 22, 1990?

    Pray for me, always.

  • Russia, New England, the June 2021 Eclipse

    https://forge-and-anvil.com/2021/06/29/russia-new-england-the-june-2021-eclipse/

    “Statue of Liberty Annular Solar Eclipse” by Anthony Quintano from Mount Laurel, United States
    I was reminded again this month that the American Empire is in a terminal phase of its life. An enormous amount of signs—let alone many obvious societal indicators—attest to this fact. But as for the former, the June 10th annular solar eclipse seemed like an obvious tell.
    That day began with the “devil’s horns” rising up out of the sea, visible on America’s eastern seaboard. The morning spectacle passed in front of the very eyes of the Statue of Liberty, herself. The eclipsed sun rose into the air, passing over New York City, New England, and then the capitol of Canada. The path of the eclipse then took itself across the Arctic Circle until if finally landed in Russia.
    My instant thought of this “line drawn between Russia and New England” was the prophecy of German Catholic mystic Alois Irlmaier. One of this man’s visions, as I’ve discussed previously, is that Russia, perhaps antagonized beyond the point of no return, will finally launch missiles into New York City. Also, it is said that China will funnel troops through Canada and attack the West Coast. As  Dr. Conrad Adlmaier wrote in his 1961 book on Irlmaier, View of the Future:
    Quote
    Irlmaier also saw a break in of yellow people across Alaska to Canada and the United States. But the masses are repulsed. In contrast, Irlmaier claimed that a large city would be destroyed by missile projectiles. He didn’t want to answer this question as to whether that meant New York and remained very cautious.
    And so, what do we have here? We have the heavens, themselves, drawing a line between New England and Russia. It strikes me as though the Almighty is illustrating to us the battle plans before the assault ever transpires. “Lady Liberty,” herself, had a front seat to this sign from above. And I find it no coincidence whatsoever that the eclipse also passed over the capitol of Canada—Canada, who complies with and panders to China. They are like the Jєωs of the Spanish Reconquista, who would often open the gates to assist the Moors in their pillaging of the cities. China, whom Trudeau and those like him openly and shamelessly flirt with on the geopolitical stage.
    Eclipses have been telling an interesting story about North America since 2017. And though this one makes its mark in an untraveled region, I see it as no different. God knows we are seeing these things, and He has a purpose in it.
    Further, Deeper Meaning
    And to add another layer to this portent, there are many cosmic alignments that correlate with this eclipse.
    This eclipse is taking place in the constellation of Gemini. Furthermore, Mercury was present in this constellation with the sun and the moon, meaning that we were witness to a triple conjunction. What does this mean?
    Gemini most certainly has its pagan associations. But in terms of the Christian view of the Zodiac, the two people of “The Twins” constellation is actually representative of a marriage. This marriage is not between two demigods, however. Instead, the constellation represents a marriage between Christ and His Church. Christ is the figure who possesses the star Pollux, which means a ruler or a judge, and in the center of Him is the star Wasat, which means “seated.” So, in the Gemini constellation, “Pollux” is actually a “seated ruler,” and he is the Christ figure. To make this even more interesting, His left foot is marked by the star Al Henah which means “Him whose heel was to be bruised.” One cannot help but recall Genesis 3:15, in which the Serpent is cursed and lies in wait for the heel of the woman’s seed:
    Quote
    I will put enmities between thee and the woman, and thy seed and her seed: she shall crush thy head, and thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.
    To “Pollux’s” left is the second Gemini figure who represents His Bride. This second figure of the constellation contains the star Castor, and in Greek the name means “pious one.” A fitting name for someone representing the Church. The figure representing the Church holds in the left hand an arrow, but in the right hand there is a harp. “Pollux” is also holding a weapon in his right hand, but it is at rest. Neither of the figures are interested in the weapons they hold in their outer hands; they are more content with the joyous musical instrument in between them. Just as Christ and His Church remain more hopeful about the joyous, merciful aspects of life, rather than the punishments and judgements. For God’s mercy is greater than His judgement.
    Quote
    It’s fascinating that the Greco-Roman myths about Castor and Pollux relate that Pollux was immortal, the son of Zeus, who took on the form of a swan to seduce Leda, the boys’ mother. Castor was mortal, the son of Leda and her husband. When Castor was dying, the immortal Pollux was given the choice, by Zeus, to give to Castor some of his immortality, and this he chose to do, just as Lord Christ offers us His immortality if we receive His grace.
    Also interesting, particularly in regards to the event of June 10th, is the fact that the ruling planet of Gemini is Mercury. And Mercury, being the speediest planet, is always regarded as a messenger. So what message is Mercury delivering this June, then?
    Ultimate Conclusion
    We are witnessing an eclipse—literal and metaphorical—in front of the constellation of Christ’s marriage to His Church.
    This eclipse begins with the unmistakable and ominous “devil’s horns” phenomenon off the coast of New England—a place destined to be firebombed by Russia, the very nation that will ultimately pull off this act, and at which place the eclipse terminates. The eclipse crosses over the very capitol of Canada, the enabler of our communist enemies abroad. As this is being pointed out, the entire event is eclipsing the cosmic sign of the Church’s relationship with Christ, Himself. (And, indeed, the Church on Earth is certainly at odds with Christ’s original vision, is it not?) And just to put a fine point on it, the sun is being made to look like a wedding ring—the natural appearance of an annular eclipse, in which the sun is not totally blotted out, but a ring of fire. This wedding ring is seen in the constellation of Christ’s marriage to His people on Earth. And to cap it all off, as though to notarize the entire thing, Mercury, the messenger and ruling planet of Gemini, is both in conjunction with this event and it is in retrograde, as though to make sure we don’t miss it.
    Final analysis?
    North America is to know war. And it will know this strife and pain as the Church’s relationship with Jesus Christ suffers.
    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
