The Next Solar Eclipse – The Beginning of the End?

It is no wonder that in many countries and throughout history solar eclipses have been viewed with dread.
Tamara Andrews wrote in her book Dictionary of Nature Myths that the solar eclipse was immensely frightening to just about all ancient cultures.
The “Long Count” calendar was implemented by the Maya to document past and future events.

What’s more, The French philosopher Nostradamas made predictions with regards to the year 2012 in which massive destruction would be caused by “in the sky a great fire dragging a fire of sparks”.
” The expression “.
” is not really clear, but an eclipse is able to only transpire with the sun as well as the moon.

This quatrain fits with Century III, quatrain 34, which describes the “monster” that will appear or happen during a solar eclipse: “Then when the eclipse of the sun will be in broad daylight the monster will be seen”.
One could believe that the increase in magnitude and frequency of earthquakes, floods, tsunamis as well as other natural disasters the earth is experiencing now is part of this prophesy.

So will the next solar eclipse of November 14, 2012 mark the End of Days? We could simply take a confident approach to this question and decide, like a lot of New Agers, that in 2012 one particular form of consciousness comes to an end and another will begin.

The Four Eclipses of 2012

” This year, 2012, we are lucky to have four distinct types of eclipses happening all of which will happen over populated areas of the world and can be viewed depending on where you live.

May 20- Annular Solar

An annular solar eclipse is an eclipse in which the moon and the sun perfectly align but because the moon appears smaller in the sky a bright ring forms around its silhouette.
At the same time a partial eclipse will be viewable over much of Asia and North America.
Looking at the sun for any amount of time with your bare eyes or even through sun glasses can permanently damage your vision! The safest way to view an eclipse is through indirect projection.
Check out your local library, science shop, or online for instructions and ideas on making your own projector.
This results in a periodic, noticeable darkening of the moon.

No special glasses or viewing equipment is necessary for viewing a lunar eclipse as the hazard is no more or less than simply looking at the moon.
During a total solar eclipse the moon completely covers the intensely bright sun creating a beautiful halo of light known as a corona.

Safely viewing a total solar eclipse and the partial eclipse of the surrounding areas requires you take the same precautions previously mentioned about the annular eclipse.
The resulting is a subtle darkening of a full moon.

Enjoy these eclipses and keep looking to the sky!
