October 24, 2714: Transit of Jupiter from Uranus, the first one in 800 years (last time this occurred was on May 3, 1914).
September 8, 2729: The distance between Mars and the Earth will arrive at a new remarkable minimum, at 55,651,033.122 km.
It will be the closer encounter of perihelitic opposition slightly shorter (just 549 km) than the previous one of the September 3, 2650.
The January 2762 sequence of the Babylon 5 episode "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars" depicts the start of a nuclear war on Earth between the fascist Politdivision, which controlled the Earth Alliance government, and the Prole Sector. As a result of the conflict, which became known as the Great Burn, Earth regressed to a medieval level of technology. It was still in the process of rebuilding itself, with the clandestine assistance of the Rangers, 500 years later.
^The saros 167 presents eclipses with very similar to those of the saros 145. For example, the Solar eclipse of July 21, 2726 (5 min 43 s), the previous one of the July 31, 2744 in this series of saros 167, would have a pathway very similar to the last one of the last millennium taken on August 11, 1999, one of the series of saros 145. It would happen at a far anniversary of the first step on the Moon by Neil Armstrong, in 1969. It would also be 1 millennium, 2 years, 2 months, minus 1 day (calendar durations) after the historical eclipse of May 22, 1724 (29th of saros 133), which was seen by Jacques Cassini and the king Louis XV. And obviously, this solar eclipse of July 31, 2744 in this series of saros 167, would have a pathway very similar to the one of the first "US Solar Eclipse of the 21st century" on August 21, 2017, the following one of the series of saros 145.
