Notable predictions and known events

2072

2076

  • Sedna—In 2076, around May 31, the planetoid 90377 Sedna is expected to reach its perihelion, its closest point to the Sun. It is expected to reach a distance of 76 AU, or 76 times the distance Earth is from the Sun. Sedna has a highly elliptical orbit, thus it is difficult to locate —at its aphelion, it reaches about 942 AU. This date is subject to adjustment as Sedna's orbit is still being refined.
  • The United States will celebrate its tricentennial on July 4.

2079

  • May 1:, a total solar eclipse is predicted for New York City, as well as Nova Scotia in Canada.[1]
  • June 6: the smalldatetime fields in SQL-Server databases will wrap around to January 1, 1900.
  • June 25: All of Michael Jackson's songs will go into the public domain.
  • August 11:, Mercury occults Mars first time since 578. Difficult to observe, but best observable occultation of a planet by an other in the 21st century.

Biblical references

  • Bede computed that the world would end in 2076, extrapolating from Biblical references and the year of Jesus' birth.[2]
