The Saros cycle is an eclipse cycle with a period of about 18 years 11 days 8 hours (approximately 6585⅓ days) that can be used to predict eclipses of the Sun and Moon.
The name "saros" was first given to the eclipse cycle by Edmund Halley in 1691, who took it from the Suda, a Byzantine lexicon of the 11th century.
For solar eclipses the statistics for the complete Saros series within the era between 2000 BCE and 3000 CE are as follows.[1] [2] The series last between about 1226 to 1550 years, which corresponds to 69 to 87 eclipses; most series have 71 or 72 eclipses.

A Saros cycle is an eclipse cycle of 223 synodic months (period from one new moon to the next), or approximately 242 draconic months (the period of the Moon to return to the ascending node of its orbit, i.e.
Thus an eclipse (which happens when a conjunction or opposition of the Sun and Moon occurs in one of the nodes, that is, crossing the plane of the orbit) occurs again one Saros later.
The name "Saros" was first given to the eclipse cycle by Edmund Halley in 1691, who took it from a lexicon by the Byzantine scholar Suidas from the 11th century.

 Saros cycle: Facts and details from Encyclopedia Topic   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The saros was discovered by ancient astronomers and was very useful to them since the calculations involved are simple.
The only problem is that the next eclipse of the same Saros cycle occurs about 8 hours later in the day.
In the case of an eclipse of the Sun this means the region of visibility shifts west one third of the way around the world and most places which saw the first eclipse do not see any of the second one.

 Astronomy Answers: Eclipses and the Saros
If the saros number of the lunar eclipse is between 109 and 112 (inclusive), then there are additional non-total lunar eclipses 1 and 6 Full Moons later, with saros numbers that are 38 greater and 5 greater, respectively.
For solar eclipses there are saros numbers, just like for lunar eclipses, but a solar eclipse with a certain saros number is not related to a lunar eclipse with the same saros number.
If the saros number of the solar eclipse is 117 or 118, then there is another (likely partial) solar eclipse 1 and 6 New Moons later, with saros numbers that are 38 greater and 5 greater, respectively.

 NASA - Eclipses and the Saros
Because the saros period is not equal to a whole number of days, its biggest drawback is that subsequent eclipses are visible from different parts of the globe.
In the case of Saros 145, the peak occurs with the eclipse of 2342 Mar 08 (gamma=0.008).
The saros cycle for lunar eclipses operates analogously with the solar eclipse saros.

 The Saros Interval
The term is known as the "Saros" and refers to an interval of 223 lunar months after which the earth, sun and moon return – almost exactly – to their same relative positions.
After three saros cycles – 54 years 34 days – the eclipse would be back to its original longitude, but it would have shifted, on the average, about 6 miles (1,000 km) northward or southward, taking totality and even major partiality out of view for the original observer.
A saros period truly does predict with accuracy that a solar eclipse will happen, but it would have been extremely hard for an ancient astronomer to confirm that the predicted eclipse had taken place and thus difficult for the astronomer or those he served to retain confidence in his solar eclipse predictions.

 On the Saros
For instance, the annular eclipse of February 1999 belongs to Saros series 140, whilst the total eclipse of August 1999 belongs to series 145.
The eclipses within any Saros series are not identical: the area they cover gradually migrates, each eclipse being centred slightly to the north or south of its predecessor.
This gives a saros series a fixed life span, beginning as a minor eclipse near one of the poles, evolving cycle by cycle into a major eclipse spanning the equatorial regions, and eventually ending as another minor eclipse at the opposite pole.

 Saros-Inex Panorama of Solar Eclipses
He arranged 8000 solar eclipses in a soros-inex panorama, grouping the eclipses column by column according to saros intervals, and line by line according to inex intervals.
In fact, each saros series lasts 12 to 15 centuries, and produces 69 to 86 eclipses, separated by one saros period (6585.32 days).
Inex series have a longer lifetime than saros series, because the shift of the moon with respect to the node of its orbit is much smaller for the inex (0.040° per cycle) than for the saros (0.478° per cycle), and the inex period (29 years) is longer than the saros (18 years).

 NASA TP 1999-209484: Saros History
The periodicity and recurrence of solar (and lunar) eclipses is governed by the Saros cycle, a period of approximately 6,585.3 days (18 years 11 days 8 hours).
Thus, the Saros is useful for organizing eclipses into families or series.

The next event of 2013 Nov 3 is a hybrid eclipse since it is total along most of its path but becomes annular near the sunrise and sunset portions of the track.

 The Metonic Cycle and the Saros
He mistakenly connected the naming of a cycle of 223 synodic months by the tenth century Greek lexicographer Suidas with the eclipse cycle of the same period.
This period is the Saros and it amounts to 18 years, 10 and a third days.
It also happens that the Saros is also nearly equal to 239 anomalistic months (the time between successive closest approaches of the Moon to the Earth) and so the length of the eclipses in each cycle will be approximately the same.
