P.S. and here are some published five-and six- figure years:

   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/11th_millennium_and_beyond

e.g.

   15790 April 20: Annular solar eclipse and a transit of Mercury.

   571741: A simultaneous transit of Venus and the Earth from Mars

Note that while both are on Wikipedia, they're each cited from other sources.
