Lunar year series[edit]

Saros series[edit]

This eclipse is a part of Saros cycle 136, and the first of the series that passes through the center of the Earth's shadow. The last occurrence was on October 28, 2004. The next occurrence is November 18, 2040.

Metonic series[edit]

This eclipse is the third of four Metonic cycle lunar eclipses on the same date, November 8–9:

The Metonic cycle repeats nearly exactly every 19 years and represents a Saros cycle plus one lunar year. Because it occurs on the same calendar date, the earth's shadow will be in nearly the same location relative to the background stars.
