Solar Saros 136, repeating every 18 years, 11 days, contains 71 events. The series started with partial solar eclipse on Jun 14, 1360, and reached a first annular eclipse on September 8, 1504. It was a hybrid event from November 22, 1612, through January 17, 1703, and total eclipses from January 27, 1721 through May 13, 2496. The series ends at member 71 as a partial eclipse on July 30, 2622, with the entire series lasting 1262 years. The longest eclipse occurred on June 20, 1955, with a maximum duration of totality at 7 minutes, 8 seconds.[2]

Series members 29–42 occur between 1865 and 2100:

Solar Saros 136 is for now producing the longest total solar eclipses. It produced the six longest total solar eclipses of the 20th century, three of them over seven minutes long. [3] It also produced the longest total eclipse of the 21st century at 6 min 39 sec, and overall will produce the century's three longest total eclipses. Each eclipse is getting slightly shorter and this series will be surpassed in total eclipse length by Solar Saros 139 (whose eclipses are getting slightly longer) on May 22, 2096.[4] Saros 136 will ultimately produce a total of 44 total eclipses. It produced the most central total eclipse between the years 1209 and 2718 and the greatest magnitude of any eclipse since the year 540 on July 11, 1991.
