Science fiction set in the 28th century

Notes

  1. ^ The saros 167 presents eclipses with very similar to those of the saros 145. For example, the Solar eclipse of July 21, 2726 (5 min 43 s), the previous one of the July 31, 2744 in this series of saros 167, would have a pathway very similar to the last one of the last millennium taken on August 11, 1999, one of the series of saros 145. It would happen at a far anniversary of the first step on the Moon by Neil Armstrong, in 1969. It would also be 1 millennium, 2 years, 2 months, minus 1 day (calendar durations) after the historical eclipse of May 22, 1724 (29th of saros 133), which was seen by Jacques Cassini and the king Louis XV. And obviously, this solar eclipse of July 31, 2744 in this series of saros 167, would have a pathway very similar to the one of the first "US Solar Eclipse of the 21st century" on August 21, 2017, the following one of the series of saros 145.
