April 2032 lunar eclipse

A total lunar eclipse will take place on April 25, 2032.This lunar eclipse is first of a tetrad, four total lunar eclipses in series. The last series was in 2014 and 2015, starting with an April 2014 lunar eclipse. The next tetrad series is in 2043 and 2044, starting with a March 2043 lunar eclipse.

This is the 57th member of Lunar Saros 122. The previous event was the April 2014 lunar eclipse. The next event will be May 2050 lunar eclipse.

EMD GT22HW-2

The Electro-Motive Division GT22HW-2 is a custom designed EMD A1A-A1A diesel-electric locomotive built by Đuro Đaković for Yugoslavia. Mainly used for passenger service, the reliability of these locomotives made this model a success even after the breakup of Yugoslavia. Designated as the Series 645 in the Yugoslav Railways, these locomotives were later known as the Series 2044 in the Croatian Railways after 1991. Thirty four examples (645.001 - 645.034), of this model were built between February 1981 to August 1984 and are noted with different formats of lettering due to the various ethnicities existing in Yugoslavia at the time.

.001 - .030 are lettered JUGOSLAVENSKE ŽELJEZNICE (Croatian)

.031 - .032 are lettered ЈУГОСЛОВЕНСКE ЖЕЛЕЗНИЦE (Serbian Cyrillic)

.033 - .034 are lettered JUGOSLOVENSKE ŽELEZNICE - HEKURUDHAT JUGOSLLAVE (Serbian/Albanian)Due to the locomotive's unique designation, the model breaks down into several indications:

Although the locomotives are equipped with A1A-A1A running gear, no official designation was present until 1993 due to low production.

September 2044 lunar eclipse

Solar eclipse of August 12, 2045

A total solar eclipse will occur on Saturday, August 12, 2045, when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide.

It will be the fourth longest eclipse of the 21st century with a magnitude of 1.0774 occurring just one hour before perigee. It will be visible throughout much of the continental United States, with a path of totality running through northern California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. The total eclipse will be greatest over the Bahamas, before continuing over the Turks and Caicos Islands, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, and Brazil.

The path of totality of this eclipse will be seen over many major cities, including Reno, Salt Lake City, Colorado Springs, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Tampa, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Nassau, Santo Domingo, Belém, São Luís and Recife. It will also be the second total eclipse visible from Little Rock in 21 years. Totality will last for at least 6 minutes along the part of the path that starts at Camden, Alabama, crossing Florida and ending near the southernmost Bahama Islands. The longest duration of totality will be 6 minutes 5.5 seconds at 25°54.594′N 78°32.19′W, which is over the Atlantic Ocean east of Fort Lauderdale and south of Freeport, Bahamas.The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 had a very similar path of totality over the U.S., about 250 miles (400 km) to the northeast, also crossing the Pacific coast and Atlantic coast of the country.

Solar eclipse of August 2, 2046

A total solar eclipse will occur on August 2, 2046. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is greater than the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide.

Solar eclipse of August 23, 2044

A total solar eclipse will occur on August 23, 2044. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness. Totality occurs in a narrow path across Earth's surface, with the partial solar eclipse visible over a surrounding region thousands of kilometres wide.

Totality will be visible across the Northwest Territories and Alberta as well as extreme southwestern Saskatchewan in Canada, and will be widely visible in Montana and partially in North Dakota in the United States of America; partiality will be visible throughout the western United States near sunset and in Siberia.

This is the last of 41 umbral solar eclipses (annular, total or hybrid) of Solar Saros 126. The first umbral was in 1323 and last will be in 2044. The total duration is over 7 centuries.

The greatest duration of the eclipse can be observed in the Northwest Territories, approximately 60 miles (97 km) southeast of Great Bear Lake.

Solar eclipse of February 16, 2045

An annular solar eclipse will occur on February 16, 2045. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun's, blocking most of the Sun's light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring). An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region of the Earth thousands of kilometres wide.

Solar eclipse of February 28, 2044

An annular solar eclipse will occur on February 28, 2044. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partly obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun's, blocking most of the Sun's light and causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring).

USS Pocahontas (ID-3044)

USS Pocahontas (SP-3044) was a transport ship for the United States Navy during World War I. She was originally the SS Prinzess Irene, a Barbarossa-class ocean liner built in 1899 by AG Vulcan Stettin of Stettin, Germany, for the North German Lloyd line.At the beginning of World War I the ship was in New York and was interned by the United States. She was seized when that country entered the conflict in 1917 and converted to a troop transport. As the USS Pocohantas, she carried 24,573 servicemen to Europe, and after the war returned 23,296 servicemen to the United States.

Decommissioned by the U.S. Navy, the United States Shipping Board sold her back to the North German Lloyd line, where she saw mercantile service until being scrapped in 1932.
