Friday: Taylor Swift, the Number 13, and a Solar Eclipse!

Friday is a super significant day!

July 12, 2018

The Taylor Swift Superfans probably already know this, buy Taylor Swift has thing for the number 13.  

Her albums Fearless and 1989 each have 13 tracks.  Her Twitter handle is TaylorSwift13.  Her birthday is December 13th.  She turned 13 on Friday the 13th.  Her first #1 song had a 13 second into.  Need we go on?  She considers 13 her lucky number, and with all these coincidences, we understand why!

Of course, there is also a Taylor Swift show this Friday the 13th at Lincoln Financial Field.  And if you needed things to get even more surreal, there will also be a solar eclipse on Friday the 13th for the first time in over 40 years!

There has not been a solar eclipse on Friday the 13th since December 13, 1974, according to NASA. And the next partial eclipse to occur on Friday the 13th will be on September 13, 2080.

This partial eclipse will not be visible to most of the world, but certain regions in Tasmania, Australia, and New Zealand will be in its path.

What would Taylor say about this auspicious occasion?  We're not quite sure...but if it's a 13 minute eclipse, that would just be TOO. SPOOKY.

See you at the Linc on Friday!
