Metonic cycles (19 years)[edit]

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 in nearly the same location relative to the background stars.

  1. 2006 Mar 14.99 - penumbral (113)
  2. 2025 Mar 14.29 - total (123)
  3. 2044 Mar 13.82 - total (133)
  4. 2063 Mar 14.67- partial (143)
  1. 2006 Sep 07.79 - partial (118)
  2. 2025 Sep 07.76 - total (128)
  3. 2044 Sep 07.47 - partial (138)
  4. 2063 Sep 07.86 - penumbral (148)

Half-Saros cycle[edit]

A lunar eclipse will be preceded and followed by solar eclipses by 9 years and 5.5 days (a half saros).[3] This lunar eclipse is related to two total solar eclipses of Solar Saros 145.
