Visualising future solar eclipses | The Washington Post

Finally, I was blown away by the "Lifetime Eclipse Predictor" visualisation created for The Washington Post (discovered via Source). In the wake of the recent total eclipse in the US, along with reading various posts on the rarity of such events, I've been left with a real urge to try and make sure at my path eventually coincides with a path of totality.

It is a ridiculously awesome coincidence that our moon's diameter and planet's solar distance align so accurately. I mean, even if there are other life-hosting
planets out there, we're certainly one of an incredibly small number that can witness this phenomenon. That makes it practically a responsibility to see a total eclipse, at least once.

Note: this was originally part of a full article titled "Stickers, Eclipses and Lighthouses" and the 36th post in my New 52 challenge. That article also linked to a (then) new tool called Google Lighthouse, a blog post talking about a growing uneasiness with Google AMP, a design collection of achievement stickers for developers, a look at time management.
