22nd century

From Academic Kids

(21st century - 22nd century - 23rd century - other centuries)


The twenty-second century comprises, for some, the years 2101 to 2200. This is almost the same as the twenty-one hundreds, which is the time between 2100 and 2199. (Some people argue that, because there was no year 0, this is not the same as the 22nd century, although some people, correctly or incorrectly, treat it as so).

Astronomical predictions for the 22nd century

  • The Earth will experience 239 lunar eclipses.
  • A total solar eclipse exceeding 7 minutes of totality will occur on June 25, 2150. This will be the first time this has happened in 177 years. But eclipse fans will not have to wait nearly so long for it to happen again - on July 5, 2168 an eclipse with 7min 26sec of totality will occur, and on July 16, 2186 an eclipse of 7min 29sec - close to the theoretical maximum - will occur. This is predicted to be the longest eclipse during the 8,000 year period from 3000 BC to AD 5000 (eclipse predictions by Fred Espenak, NASA/GSFC.DEPP).
