The seventh millennium of the Gregorian calendar will begin on January 1, 6001, and end on December 31, 7000. It will be the seventh millennium in the Anno Domini or Common Era. 6009 will be the first year since 1961 when you write it in a certain way, you can turn them upside down/invert them, and still look the same.
These are astronomical dates, so they are given in the astronomical format of Year Month Day, which allows them to be ordered.
- 6212 November 7: Mercury occults Regulus.
- 6587 September 9: Venus occults Regulus.
- 6727 August 25: Mars occults Regulus for the first time since June 28, 17,619 BC. Despite the over 24,300 year wait, it will happen three more times over the next 677 years.
- 6757 July 5: There is anticipated to be a simultaneous solar eclipse and transit of Mercury, the first such simultaneous eclipse and planetary transit in over 13 millennia.

- The events of the video game series Xenosaga take place sometime in the early 6000s. Due to the vagueness of the times given in Episode 1 of the series ('20xx' followed by '4000 years in the future'), it is possible the events cross over into the 62nd century. Contrary to this, the dates given in Xenogears Perfect Works would place Xenosaga's events in the year 7277. The Xenogears timeline does not apply to the Xenosaga timeline. At one time the two story arcs were believed to exist in the same fictional universe as many of those involved with the design and development of Xenogears continued to work on Xenosaga. However it has been stated on several occasions that the two universes are not directly related in any way.
