Eclipse July 1878 The Great Solar Eclipse of July 29, 1878 was great in the fact that much was learned scientifically about the Sun’s corona. Corona is Latin for crown or wreath. This eclipse began in Siberia and ended in the Atlantic, with totality over Wyoming and Colorado.

Colorado had just gained statehood 2 years prior in 1876. That is the reason Colorado is called the “Centennial State”, 100 years after the Declaration of Independence of July 4, 1776. The newly formed government gave $8,000 to this scientific study and scientists, such as Thomas Edison, came to record this historic event. It was the first time that such a large number of scientists had visited the frontier at one time. Astronomers from all over the world came in by car and it was recorded this new state saw hundreds of people coming in from the train every day. Some called it the “social event of the season”.

What they found regarding the corona of the Sun was the streamers coming through the Sun’s crown. They were measured twelve times the Sun’s diameter, more than 10 million miles long!

Why is this important right now? Because of the incredible sunspot on the Sun this month. Scientific study of the Sun’s gaseous atmosphere, that is only seen during a total solar eclipse and investigation of the physical nature of the Sun in relation to Earth. In my research through these past years I have discovered that when a major solar flare leaves the Sun, there will be an earthquake on the earth. Our earth has a magnetic core and will react to the Sun and the Moon in their changes. When the moon is full or new, the gravitational pull of the moon and sun are combined. At these times, the high tides are very high and the low tides are very low.  Also, during this time there are more mining accidents because of the earth moving with the gravitational pull. The earth reacts to solar flares by earthquakes and increased heat. I believe this is what is happening with our Western states, heat and forest fires. Plus, Yellowstone Park and surrounding area is reacting with increased earthquakes.

The sunspot on the Sun is larger than the planet Jupiter! The most recent solar flare of July 9, 2017 caused short-lived shortwave radio blackout over east Asia and Australia.

I watched Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu speak before the Congress this morning and then came to my office to study. I have been watching the Solar Flare activity since 2008 because that was the true picture of what would happen in 2012, not the Mayan calendar. Solar flare cycle 24 was supposed to peak in December 2012, but has far surpassed everyone with its incredible activity. Now the scientists are looking at it because of “global cooling”.

The latest was March 3, 2015 at 1:35 UT (Universal Time). That would have been March 2, 2015 8:35 Eastern Time.  It takes about 24 to 48 hours or more to reach the earth.  Yesterday’s solar flare was the strongest so far of the M-Class, being a M8-Class. Very Strong and very fast reaching to the earth.
