The links in post 16 describe the eclipses for eclipse Saros cycle 129 . There are currently 40 Saros cycles running simultaneously (see here, each with it's own complement of partial, annular, total, and hybrid eclipses. If you look here, you'll see that over 5% of all eclipses between 2000 BC and 4000 AD are hybrid. In the 21st century alone there will be ones in 2013, 2023, 2031, 2049, 2050, and 2067. In the 29th century, there will be nine of them. Your statement that "the last one will be in 2528" is inaccurate.

I was referring to the Saros 129 cycle - not any other cycle. If I gave a false impression then I apologize. But according to NASA that cycle STARTED IN 1103 and ENDS IN 2528.

Clearly you are not the most gracious poster, and since we are mourning and reflecting our (and when I say "we" and "our" I'm being very gracious) beloved Holy Father and the awe of God's Glory and signs on this particular thread, why don't you take your ire and misinterpretations elsewhere.
